    stuck lids need help!

    I think I would set them upside down and spray some PB Blaster from the auto parts store around the lid and let it soak overnight.- Gary

    I got antother Wax sealer for my collection today

    Really like that color on a crude jar like that. I think your right on the mfg. time frame, but I'm not sure that's a pontil mark. Could it just be some defect from mfg.?

    Jar Lid

    According to my Red Book the top lid goes to 3 different jars. Brighton, Fruit Keeper, or The Magic Fruit Jar, all nice jars in the $40-400 range for jars with lids and clamps.

    My new jar arrived

    Thought I'd throw up a pic of the HG re-united with her quart size sisters in a group shot. My IP petal jar is to the right of the HG just for comparison. I think I may need an intervention or something.[:(]

    My new jar arrived

    I've got a petal and they do look very similiar. I've noticed also about these jars that I've never seen one with content stain. I assume that they were all cork sealed and the contents evaporated or spilled out before enough time passed for content stain due to drying and skrinking corks or...

    My new jar arrived

    I just love these old cork seal type jars. I know unembossed jars aren't everyones favorite but these types are my favorites. This is my first one in HG size. I have several in quart size with IP and hinge mold which are fairly common, but I don't see many in HG. Does anyone have any guesses...

    Let me throw out one more site for you http://www.genforum.genealogy.com/ You can go there and put your last name in the forum search and it will take you to tons of other folks already researching your family. Sometimes you get a lot of needed info that you haven't found yet.

    Ancestry - Family History

    Ron, I started on my research about 15 years ago. Traced my paternal line back to his ship arrival in Virginia in 1635. I also spent a lot of time on my maternal line and currently have about 2300 names in my data base. Ancestry.com has a lot of good info but it gets very expensive to use them...
