Gerald

I was seven years old when my family left Michigan for the west coast, so most of my memories of my grandparent’s house on Drummond Island in Michigan are seeped in the fog of childhood nostalgia. In 2012, during a cross-country railway trip, I finally had a chance to visit again. Gerald (pronounced Gare-ald) is my last living grandparent and a treasure of stories and fascinating information on geneology, the island, and his time spent on the Alaskan railroad in the 1940’s.
