The Uncle Reuben Project is an interdisciplinary, authentic learning project going on in my classroom. It brings genealogy into my classroom and engages my students with real world learning experiences! Resources and primary source documents can be found at the links to the right.

Uncle Reuben and His Canoe

Recently, I visited my aunt and uncle on their farm near McPherson, Kansas. I love going there because they are lots of fun AND my uncle is the family genealogist for his generation. Every time I visit I find another treasure!
As I was looking through yet another group of photos for the first time, I spotted Uncle Reuben! I have lots of pictures of him but this one was special because it showed him WITH "the famous" canoe! The picture isn't in the best shape but it is a visual connection between Reuben and the canoe.

This picture is absolutely going to be a part of The Uncle Reuben Project for Year 3! What a find!
