Working Wednesday / Wili etsii töitä / Wili is looking for a job


 Wili lähetti Laurille kortin Knapptonin metsätyömaalle.


Ilwaco 24 pv. 1915
Hei vain Lauri
Terveiset Ilwaacosta
ja aijon kysyä kuinka ne kämpät siellä runnaa
jos viitsisit kysyä mulle töitä siltä virkkalalta
sillä täällä ei ole ollut paljon minkäänlaisia hommia
hyvästi vain
Wili Kentala Ilwaco Box Wash

Old letters, postcards and photos are very interesting, for example this postcard from Wili to my great uncle Lauri.
 Wili didn`t have any work in Ilvaco and he wrote to Lauri and asked  if   Wirkkala has any kind of work for him also.


   Ei saanut Wili Wirkkalalta töitä. Wilistä tuli kalastaja.
Wili became a fisherman.
CAMP BRIX:  A logging camp on Sisson Creek in southeast Pacific County at the turn of the century.  Operated by the Brix Brothers (Asmus, Peter Johannes, Albert, and Anton) under the name Grays Bay Logging Company.  The company earned sufficient capital to permit the brothers to buy the Knappton Mill from A.M. Simpson in 1909.  Albert Brix was in charge of the sawmill and P. J. Brix operated the logging camp.



 World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
In 1917 and 1918, approximately 24 million men living in the United States completed a World War I draft registration card. These registration cards represent approximately 98% of the men under the age of 46. The total U.S. population in 1917-1918 was about 100 million individuals. In other words, close to 25% of the total population is represented in these records.
