I was wondering if you are

I was wondering if you are the same Judy Borup who compiled the BOM Family Scripture Reading Challenge? My Relief Society is very interested in it and wondered if it were available on a CD which would make it easier to reproduce. It's wonderful.

photo of Eliphalet Armstrong Family

Hello Judy. Eliphalet was my great-grandfather and Amanda my great-grandmother.

Do you have anymore photos? It was great to discover this photo. It appears to be taken about 1890 because my granfather is not in the picture nor is my great aunt Magerite. My grandfather, Lloyd was born in 1892. I have my great grandfather's journal. He was a tinsmith. I also have his hand made tool box. Do you have any other relics from this family? Where do you now live?

I was born in Richland County, Ohio. I now live in Medina where I am superintendent of a local school district. Thanks for posting the photo. I really enjoyed it.

Bruce -- I do have a few
