Every time I turned around at my grandparent's cottage, I'd always find something new that would catch my interest. Grandma was such a collector of little odd and ends! One could walk in the front door and immediately see something to look at. I just loved looking at her old-timey stuff!

The great room was the equivalent of the family's living and dining rooms, and the prime gathering spot of the entire cottage. A functional room more than decorative, it was large enough for 20 people to sit comfortably in. Because the family was so large, a long trestle table sat in directly the middle of the room with picnic benches as chairs. Couches and overstuffed chairs filled the outer walls. All in all, an unusual furniture arrangement, but nobody ever complained. Being together was enough. Once again this room will be filled with love.

Since research without documentation is hearsay, we, the cousins of the Bower, Bowers, Bauer and Baur research groups would like to share our wealth with you. Here you'll find vital records and documentation that may help you with your own research.

Should you find a record that helps, please contact the submitter and let him/her know of your connection.

In the same turn, if you have Bower[s], Bau[e]r, Bro[u]wer, etc. certificates, you're certainly welcome to house them here where all the cousins may benefit from them and perhaps have someone find you!

All certificates are ancestors who have passed on. There are no living individuals in this database.
