On the Cover: The professional portrait shows Bruce F. Pauley’s great-great-grandfather Heinrich Pauley (1834-1914) and his first wife, Elizabeth Ross Pauley (1836-1896). Both were born in the German-Russian village of Norka in Russia and died in Harvard, Nebraska. The photograph probably was taken about 1890. The couple are dressed in formal attire in a studio with a decorative floral backdrop. Elizabeth wears a kerchief on her head and rests her right hand on Heinrich’s shoulder. The photo accompanies the article “Make the Past Come Alive: How to Put Your Ancestors in Historical Perspective, Part II,” by Bruce Pauley.
