The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the national museum of the Netherlands, has a terrific web site. It is such a cool site! Browse it up. You can learn a lot. Amazingly detailed information. Pick a number, any of the numbers, to reveal a factoid.
Born in Iowa, I now live in Seattle. My parents met in South Dakota. During the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl many families left. My great uncle made his way west in 1939 with some of his hometown friends. Their destination was Anacortes, Washington, where they'd landed jobs building a log mill. My great uncle continued to Seattle, for a time living in the Greenlake neighborhood with a family from that same hometown.
