|View of Khorramabad, Iran by: m.gh|
“Up early to get ready to leave. Departed Tehran at 1100 hours by train. I goofed tipped the porters at the station 200 Rials = $2.64 hell of a tip for 5 suitcases. They put one over on me. But I learned. The train is very nice European style cars first class each passenger has a Pullman birth to a compartment. I, Capt Ward, an Englishman, and an Iranian Businessman occupied the same compartment. The train is diesel Electric but goes very slow. Most of the trip to Dorude was thru the mountains. We arrived at Dorude at 2100 hours was met by trucks from the team. Arrived at Khorramabad my house for the next year at 2350 hours. What a place.”

My monthly column will focus on lineage societies. There are quite a few out there that are unique, different, and down right surprising! I will write about a different society, or group of societies each month so keep checking back. You never know what I might discover.
Also I will be writing monthly blog posts on technology that genealogists could find useful. Subjects will range from apps, gadgets, tools, software, hardware, or anything else that may help you further your electronic genealogy journey. I really love my gadgets and gizmos so having an outlet for my curiosity, and an excuse to sample things, is a bonus.
See you at the IDG!

Out of curiosity I Googled raisin pie to see what I could come up with. Intermingled in the results for rum raisin, apple/walnut/raisin, and rhubarb raisin pies were ones for my "traditional" raisin pie. There was an interesting blog post on it about being a mourning pie for the Amish. Interesting to me as there is a large Amish and Mennonite population in the part of Indiana they lived. Another one even had a video on how to make it! Even more amazing to me was that they both are the exact same recipe that my grandmother had written down decades ago.
