As I noted on facebook, we have a pretty extensive hymnal collection that we are passing on to others. If you are interested, please let me know and I will gladly send them to you – we ask that you pay the shipping. You are welcome to make a donation to our kids college funds as well.
I am finding out that many came from the Brooklyn Missionary Church, Cleveland, OH.
If you feel that these are actually valuable, please let me know, so I can properly sell them. Thanks!
Many of these have notes inside, or a memorial/donation plate. Many of them came from our former churches or churches that we have family/friends associated with. They do have a smidgeon of sentimental value, but sometimes you just have to let go.
Here is a list of what we have in this collection, that I have found so far.
