AMNESTY OF LOL PROPERTY!
a little sinister we know, but due to the huge volume of family tree requests I receive and forward to Lodges only to get
the reply "God only knows where the old books are..." I have decided to try to recover as much property as possible to have
it returned to Lodge lockers where it's safe from being thrown away.
far since 2009 and now 2016 I recovered 12 minute books in one lodge going back to 1899, four in another from 1929-50,
a signing in book from a Bootle Lodge from 1878-1946, one collarette over 100 years old and an antique mace belonging to a
band last seen in the 60's!
of this recovery work starts at the receipt of a secure e-mail via this site from members of the public who find items in
lofts, sheds and garages from ex members who have sadly passed away and they are genuinely unsure what they are for and where
they best belong. Most have a genuine respect for the past owners standing in the Order and wish for them to be kept safe.
where I come in!!!
books and general documentation are worth a lot to the individual Lodges and Districts and can stir a lot of interest, older
artifacts can be re-used in meetings and displays.
people mention what they are worth on EBAY.......
me they are worth nothing - it's like finding someones old photo album and asking a stranger to buy it!
I ask is if anyone has anything to do with the Order - Worldwide not just Merseyside - I will return it to it's rightfull
owner and the Lodge (if it still exists) will acknowledge receipt and inform you where it is being kept safe.
