Podcast 64 - Ancestral Pets

Jean Wilcox Hibben and Sara Cochran decided to talk about family pets - their own as well as the ones that their ancestors had (or might have had). Information about the history of animals and people is not new to us in the current years, but pet-ownership dates back centuries. How do you know if your family members had pets? Some thoughts on that are discussed, but a caution about not making assumptions is, of course, included. Also discussed: "animals as food" and not expecting that every family that had animals considered those creatures as pets.

Jean's Grandfather, H. P. Johnson, & Rex; Milwaukee, ca. 1925
