Family Discovery on eBay
I have written about my husband's grandfather, Rev. Christian Wismer Ruth being a pastor for the Church of the Nazarene.
While researching we found he wrote a number of books throughout his ministry. In fact several volumes are available on GoogleBooks.
Last year I began searching eBay with hopes of acquiring several editions. We have been fortunate enough to locate and obtain three different titles.
Our recent acquisition is the book entitled "Temptations Peculiar to the Sanctified" published in 1928.
After placing a bid I crossed fingers, toes and eyes. What a wonderful feeling when we won. Another family treasure obtained from eBay.
The seller listed the book in very good condition with little wear. Since the book was paperback I was worried there was possible damage done over the years.
When the book arrived it was in excellent condition.
Upon opening the pages we discovered a wonderful surprise. There we found this previously unseen photograph of C.W. Ruth.
Don't forget to check eBay and other auction sites for possible family treasures.
You never know what you will find.
