Griddlesode S13-001: Project Lizzie: It’s a Wrap

It’s called a green leaf, Ancestry.com’s notification symbol that represents a genealogical hint. Most ancestry stories start by clicking on these leaves, but this particular click lead to the end of one. On February 10, 2018, the clues hidden behind this iconic symbol led me to solve a forty-two-year-old mystery.

You first heard about this story four years ago on Griddlesode S9-001. Back then, I had just started a project to follow the clues left on a stack of old postcards, dated between 1904 and 1925, that I found when I was 13 years old. A lot has happened in the last four years and I wanted to get you all caught up. I do in a story that I call, “Project Lizzie: It’s a Wrap.”

 

 

The music in this podcast comes from Ayla Nereo’s page on The Free Music Archive. In order of appearance are:

  • It’s Okay

This is the photograph that I had been waiting for. Lizzie is the last person on the right.
