Deloitte en sy lidmaatskappye het baie verjaarsdae en herdenkings, maar die ware oorsprong van die organisasie was tydens die opening van die kantoor van William Welch Deloitte in Londen op 23 April 1845.

Die Lincoln -proklamasie stel Elijah W. Sells Sr. aan as derde ouditeur van die Amerikaanse tesourie

In 1864 kies president Abraham Lincoln Elijah Sells - die vader van Elijah W. Sells, 'n belangrike figuur in die geskiedenis van Deloitte - om die derde ouditeur van die Tesourie van die Verenigde State te wees. Die Lincoln -proklamasie, waarin Lincoln se besluit oor die nageslag opgeteken word, het 'n waardevolle deel van Deloitte se geskiedenis geword.

'N Rolmodel stigter: bemagtig lewens vir generasies

Holy Trinity Church, Southall, Verenigde Koninkryk

Vier dekades lank het stigter William Welch Deloitte sy tuiste in Southall, 'n stad 40 myl wes van sy kantoor in die middel van Londen, gevestig. Hy het sterk bande met die plaaslike gemeenskap opgebou en gehelp om die bou van sy gemeenskapskerk in 1890 te finansier. "Sy werke volg hom wel" is die ikoniese woorde wat ter ere van Deloitte op 'n gedenkplaat buite die Holy Trinity Church geskryf is.

Die vrygewigheid van Deloitte het verder uitgebrei toe hy in 1897 die grond en fondse geskenk het om huise vir die armes in Southall te skep. Deloitte's Almshouses, wat tydens Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee gebou is, bly 'n lewende bewys van Deloitte se liefdadigheidsgees.

Vandag is Southall 'n uiteenlopende, grootliks Suid -Asiatiese gemeenskap wat bekend staan ​​as Little India, met tekens op die treinstasie in beide Engels en Gurmukhi. Die kerk en die aalmoese staan ​​vandag nog steeds 'n herinnering aan Deloitte se toewyding aan sy gemeenskap.

Toe dit in 2003 bekendgestel is, was die Green Dot beperk tot die leestekens van Deloitte se nuwe woordmerk -logo. Maar in 2009 het dit meer bekendheid verwerf as deel van 'n advertensieveldtog waarin die Dot die pad vorentoe gewys het: as 'n deurknop wat 'n nuwe geleentheid oopmaak, 'n son wat agter 'n wolk opkom en ander rolle.

Global Deloitte Universiteit

Die Deloitte -universiteit het in 2016 na Asië uitgebrei toe dit sy vyfde kampus in Singapoer geopen het.

Akintola Williams, die eerste swart Afrikaner wat as 'n Britse geoktrooieerde rekenmeester gekwalifiseer het.

S.B. Billimoria, die stigter van 'n Deloitte India -erfenisfirma, was die mees versierde Indiese rekenmeester van sy generasie. In 1928 word hy die eerste en enigste Indiese rekenmeester wat tot ridder geslaan is.

Teen 1847, na twee jaar besigheid, het Deloitte 'n personeel van 10 gehad wat tussen nege en 17 uur per dag werk.

"Mnr. Deloitte, was een van die eerstes, indien nie die heel eerste nie, wat die professionele element in die praktyk van boekhouding in Londen ingebring het. ” John Gane, Deloitte-klerk, 1857-1870.

Ontwikkeling van toekomstige leiers

Deloitte LLP se Emerging Leaders Development Program (ELDP) berei uiteenlopende, hoëpresterende bestuurders voor vir die volgende fase in hul loopbane. Benewens 'n intensiewe kurrikulum en 'n reeks digitale selfbeoordelingsinstrumente, koppel ELDP elke deelnemer met 'n senior mentor wat die deelnemer vir ten minste twee jaar adviseer.

'N Verbintenis tot leierskap en leer

Die Universiteit van Deloitte het in 2018 meer as 90,500 professionele persone van Deloitte opgelei in meer as 2,000 programme, wat die professionele persone voorberei op die volgende stap in hul loopbane.

'Europeërs en inboorlinge is 'n integrale deel van ons Suid -Afrikaanse nasie - hoe beter ons mekaar verstaan, hoe groter is die hoop op 'n vreedsame en voorspoedige Suid -Afrika. Die toekomstige vooruitgang van Suid -Afrika hang onlosmaaklik saam met die ekonomiese welvaart van alle dele van ons Suid -Afrikaanse bevolking. ” Howard Pim, stigter, Howard Pim & Hardy, 1905.

Sharon Allen was die eerste vrou wat die direksie van 'n groot vier rekeningkundige firma gelei het, wat van 2003 tot 2011 as Amerikaanse voorsitter van Deloitte gedien het.

GLOBE, Deloitte UK se hulpbrongroep vir werknemers vir LGBTQ -werknemers, het 'n 2016 Deloitte Impact -toekenning ontvang ter erkenning van sy werk namens werknemers.

Jennie Palen en vroulike leiers

Jennie Palen, 'n skoolhoof by Haskins & amp Sells en die eerste vrou wat aan die hoof was van 'n departement by 'n groot rekeningkundige firma, is oorspronklik 'n CPA -pos aangebied weens 'n tekort aan manlike ouditeure na die Eerste Wêreldoorlog.

In 1857, tydens sy ondersoek na die bedrog van die Great Northern Railway, het Deloitte 'n vennoot geneem, Thomas Greenwood, wat vir nog een van Deloitte se vroeë kliënte, Great Western Railway, gewerk het.

Toe Deloitte, Plender, Griffiths & amp in 1913 'n kantoor in St. Petersburg oopmaak, verbied die Russiese wet die gebruik van 'n oorledene se naam in 'n firma se naam. Die Russiese kantore van Deloitte werk dus onder die naam Plender, Griffiths, Wyatt & amp Co. totdat hulle gedwing was om te sluit na die Russiese rewolusie van 1917.

Die stigter van Deloitte Nigeria, Akintola Williams, is die enigste oorlewende wat die oorspronklike memorandum en statute van die Nigeriese aandelebeurs (NSE) onderteken het sedert sy stigting in 15 September 1960.

Deloitte was een van die eerste internasionale rekenmeestersfirmas wat in 1984 'n verteenwoordigende kantoor in Beijing opgerig het, en was die eerste wat nege jaar later 'n koöperatiewe gesamentlike onderneming daar gestig het.

Kort nadat dit in 1968 gestig is, het Tohmatsu, Awoki & amp Co 'n internasionale mag geword. Teen die tyd dat die firma in 1975 lid geword het van Touche Ross International, het die firma meer as 50 Japannese kliënte alleen in New York gehad.

Die voorgangersfirma van Deloitte in Noorweë, die Bergens Revisionsinstitut, noem homself die 'tillitsselskapet' - 'die maatskappy van vertroue'.

WEDIT, destyds die Duitse lidmaatskap van Deloitte, het in 1990 vier kantore in die voormalige Oos -Duitsland geopen, net een jaar na die val van die Berlynse muur en die jaar wat Oos- en Wes -Duitsland verenig het.

Philip Simpson Ross het sy rekeningkundige praktyk - een van die voorlopers van Touche Ross - in 1858 in Montréal geopen, nege jaar voor Kanadese eenwording.

Die drie ondernemings wat in 1974 kragte saamgesnoer het om Touche Ross & amp in Australië te stig, is almal in die vroeë 1880's gestig, en een het wortels wat tot in 1862 gestrek het.

Haskins & amp Sells het sy revolusionêre ouditprogrammatuur, AUDITAPE, onthul tydens die jaarlikse AICPA -vergadering in 1967. Meer as 1 000 mense is opgelei in die gebruik daarvan, en meer as 1 000 bande is op ses kontinente geskep en gebruik.

In Desember 1928 het Haskins & amp Sells se kantoor in New York vir die eerste keer gebruik gemaak van fakstegnologie en 'n werkspapier van New York na die kantoor in Los Angeles gestuur. Die uitsending het 90 minute geneem.

'Die ontwikkeling van Auditape deur Haskins & amp Sells beklemtoon ons firma se oortuiging dat ons, om die uitdaging van 'n groeiende môre die hoof te bied, bereid sal wees om 'n baanbreker te wees in die ondersoek van die krag van 'n idee. . . . Sonder hierdie gees sou die maan steeds 'n verre satelliet wees - en nie 'n voorstad van die wêreld nie. " Roy Lampe, sake- en nywerheidsskrywer, Haskins & amp Sells, 1970.

Tim Haselwood, Derrick Paterson, Ken Purchase en Bill Martin van Touche Ross met die kantoor se nuwe draagbare mikrorekenaar in 1983.

Haskins & amp Sells se ouditverslag van 1898 vir die Reading Railroad is moontlik die vroegste verslag deur 'n gesertifiseerde openbare rekenmeestersfirma.

In 1893 werk Elijah W. Sells saam met Charles Waldo Haskins om die rekeningkundige stelsel van die Amerikaanse regering te hersien. Die 53ste kongres erken die pogings van Sells deur middel van 'n kongreswet.

Tegnologieë van die vierde industriële rewolusie help Deloitte se massiewe groei. Deloitte Omnia, 'n wolk-gebaseerde AI-platform, het gehelp om meer as US $ 1 miljard se wêreldwye beleggings van 2013 tot 2018 in die Audit & amp Assurance-oefengebied in te samel.

Deloitte se toegewyde Apple -praktyk, die eerste in sy soort, het ongeveer 5000 strategiese adviseurs, meer as 1% van die totale arbeidsmag van Deloitte, wat kliënte help om hul gebruik van die ekosisteem van die onderneming te maksimeer.

Haskins & amp Sells het die rekeningkundige stelsels van Chicago in 1901 opgeknap, insluitend 'n oudit van sy rekords van 1871 tot 1891. Die hervormings het die stad gehelp om $ 70,000 per jaar te bespaar.

Touche Ross se konsultasie-onderneming het die beoordeling van die meer as 75 000 inskrywings in die 1963 Pillsbury Grand National Bake-Off gekoördineer.

Ed Kangas van Touche Ross, Iwao Tomita van Tohmatsu en Michael Cook van Deloitte by die samesmelting van Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.

Elijah Watt Sells van die nalatenskapfirma Deloitte Haskins & amp Sells het geweier dat ouditeure toelaat om as direkteure in die rade van kliënte te dien, 'n beleid wat die Amerikaanse onafhanklikheidsreël van die American Institute of Certified Public Accountants geïnspireer het, wat in 1962 aangeneem is.

Toe Suheil Saba, seun van die stigter van Saba & amp; Co, Fuad Saba, en twee werknemers in Bagdad in 1949 na Koeweit, Bahrein en Katar gestuur is, het hulle jare lank uit 'n tent gebly en gewerk by 'n temperatuur van tot 50 ° C ( 122 ° F).

In die 1950's het Fuad Saba, die stigter van Saba & amp Co., se seun, Suheil, die hele 1,069 myl lange lengte van die Trans-Arabiese pyplyn in 'n bakkie gery om betaalstate uit te voer en stelsels en kontroles by alle stasies op te stel.

Groei in die Midde -Ooste

'Die beroep van die ouditeur was amper [in die 1920's] bekend in die Arabiese wêreld. . . . Ek het wel volhard, soos enige pionier, met die gevolg dat die praktyk elke jaar binne die raamwerk van ware professionele beginsels gegroei het. . . onafhanklikheid, professionele kennis en integriteit. ” Fuad Saba, stigter van Saba & amp., 1971.

Saba & amp Co. en Touche Ross vier hul ooreenkoms van 1978 met 'n handdruk tussen Russell Palmer, besturende vennoot by Touche Ross, en Suheil Saba, besturende vennoot van Saba & amp.

Meer as 'n spoorwegouditeur

Geval van bankrotskappe was belangrik vir William Welch Deloitte, selfs nadat hy naam gemaak het as 'n spoorwegouditeur, met ten minste een klerk wat die Newgate -gevangenis besoek om 'n kliënt te onderhou.

U dink miskien nie dat 'n Formule 1-motorsportspan baie kliënte buite die baan kan bied nie, maar die Britse span van Deloitte het saamgewerk met McLaren Applied Technologies om die nuutste sensor, simulasie, voorspellende analise en kunsmatige intelligensie te ondersteun op data-gedrewe besighede.

Gedurende die 1960's en 1970's het Touche Ross se rekenaarkonsultantsake gehelp om die welsyn van die staat, snelwegveiligheid en bestuurslisensie -stelsels in die VSA te herstruktureer.

Die vroeë kliënte van Haskins & amp Sells was Vassar College sowel as Barnum & Bailey's Circus. Laasgenoemde het die firma aangespoor om sy kantoor in 1901 in Londen te open.

Die eerste en tweede revolusie

Toe William Welch Deloitte in 1845 Deloitte & amp. Co. stig, het spoorweg- en stoomtegnologieë Engeland reeds baie verander. Die kliënte van Deloitte, soos die Great Western Railway en die Great Eastern Steamship -onderneming, het die voortou geneem in die tegnologie van die tweede industriële revolusie: elektrisiteit en telefoon.

'Die eerste jare van strawwe stryd. . . as 'n ouditeur wat in daardie dae baie grens aan 'n spekulatiewe avontuur. . . het die saadjies van sukses en voorspoed gesaai wat later jare 'n oorvloedige opbrengs opgelewer het. ” Toespraak deur die vennote en personeel van die Deloitte -nalatenskapfirma S.B. Billimoria & amp aan Shapoorjee Bomanji Billimoria op sy ridderskap, 1928.

'' 'N Beroep kan slegs bestaan ​​solank dit 'n sosiale en ekonomiese nut het. . . . As die winsmotief oorheersend raak en diensmotief op die agtergrond kom, sal die beroep agteruitgaan en mettertyd selfs ophou bestaan. ” Chinubhai C. Chokshi, stigter van die erfenisfirma Deloitte C.C. Chokshi & amp., 1965.

Nasionale en globale reikwydte

In die 1980's het Touche Ross 'Computer Systems Consulting -onderneming al 50 Amerikaanse state as kliënte getel, sowel as die regerings van Kanada en Nieu -Seeland.

Haskins & amp verkoop en die Amerikaanse poskantoor

Die eerste amptelike kliënt van Haskins & amp Sells was die Amerikaanse poskantoor, wat die erfenis van Deloitte betrek het om die geldstelsel van die land te hervorm.

Geboorte van die ewekniebeoordelingstelsel

Haskins & amp Sells was 'n belangrike rol in die totstandkoming van die ewekniebeoordelingstelsel vir Amerikaanse rekeningkundige praktyke, met Gordon Murray van die firma as voorsitter van die komitee van die American Institute of Certified Public Accountants wat die kwessie bestudeer het, en Haldon Robinson was die leier van die eerste beoordelingspan.

Howard Pim, stigter van die erfenisfirma Deloitte Pim Goldby, het gehelp om die Institute of Race Relations in 1929 te vestig en was sy tesourier. Pim, 'n lewenslange Quaker, het 'n groot deel van sy lewe daaraan gewy om oplossings vir Suid -Afrika se rasseprobleme te soek en was toegewy aan die bevordering van onderwys vir swartes in Suid -Afrika. 'N Gemeente in Johannesburg is vernoem na Pim.

Elijah W. Sells het wêreldvrede genader met die ingesteldheid van 'n rekenmeester. In noukeurige besonderhede breek hy die logistiek van die oprigting van 'n weermag vir 'n voorgestelde wêreldvredestribunaal in 1915 uit.

WêreldKlas het $ 16 miljoen in 2018 geskenk om mense deur middel van onderwys te bemagtig en het 'n impak op 1,45 miljoen mense in 53 lande gehad.

'Ek vind dit uiters belangrik om te werk, te leef en doelwitte te stel in die globale konteks eerder as binne die perke van 'n nasie.' Iwao Tomita, stigter van Tohmatsu, Awoki, & amp., 2011.

'Pim se siening oor die rol van 'n ouditeur sal in die moderne wêreld baie lof kry. . . . Hy het vas geglo dat elke mens 'n beperkte plig het om sy gemeenskap en die gemeenskap in die algemeen te dien, en het aktief betrokke geraak by talle aktiwiteite om die lewens van individue en groepe daarbinne te verbeter en te verryk. " Hendrina Westoll, Of Ledgers and Legends: The Story of Deloitte South Africa.

As deel van die wêreldKlas, Werk Deloitte saam met die Kanadese nie-winsgewende junior prestasie om studente te help om werklike ondernemings te skep en hulle deur hul hele lewensiklus te lei. Een studente -onderneming verdien $ 3,530 gedurende die eerste vyf maande.

Deloitte se kantoor in New York het tydens die Eerste Wêreldoorlog saam met die Commission for Relief in België gewerk. Die voorsitter van die kommissie, toekomstige Amerikaanse president, Herbert Hoover, het 'n kantoor in dieselfde gebou as die hoofkwartier van Deloitte in Londen en sou dikwels die leier van die firma, Sir William Plender, besoek.

Van Londen na Johannesburg

'N Kliënt wat die voorstad van Auckland Park in die laat 19de eeu ontwikkel het, noem twee strate' Lothbury Road 'en' Finsbury Avenue ', ter ere van Deloitte se voormalige kantore in Londen.

Benewens die ondersteuning van die bou van die Holy Trinity Church in Southall, het William Welch Deloitte die kerkorrel geskenk.

Beide Haskins & amp Sells en Touche, Niven & Co. was in die vroeë 1900's in die Johnston -gebou in Broadstraat 30 in New York geleë. Die gebou is in 1931 gesloop.

Die groenste gebou ter wêreld

The Edge in Amsterdam is die groenste gebou ter wêreld, met byna 30 000 sensors wat aansluit by 'n mobiele app wat gebruik word deur die 2500 werknemers van Deloitte wat daar gevestig is en net 1 000 lessenaars deel, wat samewerking en interaksie aanmoedig.

'N' Kweekhuis 'vir komplekse probleme

Deloitte-kweekhuise is vooraanstaande werkruimtes wat ontwerp is om die mees komplekse probleme van kliënte aan te pak.

Die Deloitte -naam is Frans: William Welch Deloitte se oupa, graaf Jean Onuphre Noailles de Loitte, was 'n hofdienaar van koning Louis XVI van Frankryk wat tydens die Franse rewolusie na Engeland gevlug het. Hy vestig hom in Hull en verengels sy naam aan John Onuphre Christmas Deloitte.

Die eerste Japanse CPA in die VSA

Tot 1970 kon slegs 'n Amerikaanse burger die toets neem om 'n CPA in die Verenigde State te word. Toe die vereiste verslap is, het Takeshi Yamaguchi van Tohmatsu New York die toets afgelê en die eerste Japanse burger geword wat 'n gelisensieerde CPA in die Verenigde State geword het.

2020 was 175 jaar waarin Deloitte -mense 'n belangrike impak gemaak het. Dit is 'n blywende verhaal wat in 1845 met William Welch Deloitte begin het. 'N Persoon met 'n ideaal, integriteit en aansporing om iets te bou wat kan hou. Iemand wat die krag van verbinding verstaan ​​as 'n manier om te groei. Dit was die begin van 'n florerende wêreldwye organisasie, wat gegroei het tot meer as 330,000 mense wat met trots 'n erfenis van verbinding en samewerking voortbring. Ideale wat die basis van die huidige Deloitte bly - 'n organisasie met die multidimensionele perspektiewe wat nodig is om die grootste uitdagings ter wêreld op te los - in die sakewêreld en die samelewing.

Dit is hoe ons 'n impak maak wat belangrik is. Ons is sedert die koms van die stoomenjin 'n menslike katalisator by die kruising van besigheid en tegnologie. Ons het kliënte bedien deur drie industriële revolusies. Ons is meer as gereed om deur die vierde te lei. Ons word nie vertrou nie, want ons bestaan ​​al meer as 175 jaar. Ons het bestaan ​​omdat ons betroubaar is. Daarom kies kliënte Deloitte.

Dit is dus een van die min kere dat een van my versoeke in aksie verdwyn het (verlore geraak deur USPS), maar as hulle hul eie reëls nagekom het, sou ek geweet het dat daar iets verkeerd was as ek nie 'n antwoord gekry het nie. Aangesien hulle nie beeldende versoeke erken nie, word ek platgevat as hulle sê: 'Ons sal u voorblaaie met 'n gewone datumstempel kanselleer; ons het geen rekord dat u hierdie prentjie ingedien het nie.

As 'n onverwante gedagte, aangesien ons FB oop is vir nie -USCS -lede, waarom moet hierdie webwerf dan gesluit word? Dit is onder meer werwingshulpmiddels, so maak u nie oop vir die wêreld nie. As ons probleme ondervind met 'n besoeker of lid, kan die administrateurs die nodige stappe neem.

Die TFA is 'n vooraanstaande nasionale familievereniging wat toegewy is aan die behoud van ons trotse Tenney -erfenis. Ons stamvader, Thomas Tenney, het in 1638 in die Massachusetts -kolonie aangekom. Lidmaatskap is nie net oop vir die afstammelinge van Thomas Tenney nie, maar ook vir almal wat belangstel in die Tenney -van of enige van die variasies daarvan. (Tinney, Tenney, ens.) Die Tenney Family -organisasie bestaan ​​sedert 1891, eers as 'n informele gesinsbyeenkoms, gevolg deur 'n meer formele organisasie wat in die Hannover, NH -gebied gestig is. Verenigingsrekords noem die eerste verkiesing van beamptes in 1925, en die vorming van die TFA. Die Vereniging het sedertdien jaarliks ​​vergader!

Ons kom een ​​keer per jaar bymekaar om op hoogte te bly van gesinsnuus, ons besigheidsvergadering te hou, 'n aangename naweek vol aktiwiteite te hê en om nuwe "neefs" wat by die vereniging aangesluit het, te verwelkom. Die reünies word op verskillende plekke in die VSA gehou. Behalwe die jaarlikse reünie, werk baie lede van die vereniging die hele jaar hard aan ander TFA -projekte om te verseker dat die vereniging 'n trotse nalatenskap vir alle toekomstige Tenney -geslagte sal nalaat. Ons publiseer 'n nuusbrief, getiteld Tenney Times, vier keer per jaar, vol interessante artikels oor Tenney -plekke, mense en nuus. Ons hou 'n Facebook -bladsy en 'n boodskapbord op Rootsweb. Die Vereniging het in sy argiewe ou foto's, briewe, erfstukke, boeke, koerantartikels saam met honderde genealogiese kaarte en manuskripte wat meer as 80 jaar oud is, geskryf deur en oor Tenneys.

Die Tenney Family Association is daartoe verbind om die familienaam en erfenis van Tenney te handhaaf.

Een van die voordele van lidmaatskap in die Tenney Family Association (TFA) is 'n lidkorting op TFA -goedere, beskikbaar op ons webwerf. Dit is slegs 'n "voorbeeld:"

TENNEY “ LAAGWAPENS ” STOEL

In die uitgawe van Our Tenney Family uit 1891, deur MJ Tenney, verklaar sy: For the Tenney “Coats of Arms ” is ons dank verskuldig aan Lieut. EA Tenney van La Crosse, Wis., Wat die saak noukeurig ondersoek het (op eie koste) en die uitslag van sy navorsing met die elektrotipe voorgelê het aan prof. ons aanvaar dit met dankbaarheid.

Hierdie artikel handel nie oor hoe vasgestel is dat dit ons Tenney -wapen is nie, maar eerder die geskiedenis van hierdie stoel wat die wapens wat ons as ons aangeneem het, vertoon. 'N Mens kan verwys na die 2007 -uitgawe, Deel een, vir meer besonderhede oor die ontwikkeling van die wetenskap en kuns van die heraldiek, soos aangebied in “ The Royal Ancestry of Deacon Levi Tenney ”.

Hierdie stoel is aan my gegee deur Janet (Jay) Tenney van destyds, Arlington, Massachusetts. Jay was 'n jarelange lid en beampte van die Tenney Family Association. Vanweë die nabyheid van ons wat naby mekaar gewoon het, ontmoet het by 'n Tenney Reunion ongeveer 1995, en as mede -beamptes van die TFA, het ons goeie vriende geword. In 1998 besluit Jay om haar familie opstal te verkoop en na Peabody Mass te verhuis na 'n Senior Living Community genaamd Brooksby Village. Soos baie mense weet of besef, beteken dit dat 'n mens se persoonlike besittings verminder moet word. Soveel as wat Jay trots was op die stoel wat by haar huis in koloniale styl (gebou in 1804) pas, pas dit nie in haar nuwe woonstel in Brooksby Village nie. Ek was destyds die kurator vir die TFA, so Jay het voorgestel dat ek die stoel neem, wetend hoe passievol ek was ten opsigte van alles wat Tenney verband hou.

Ek het belowe om hierdie kosbare erfstuk van die gesin baie goed te versorg, met een voorwaarde. Dit was, ek sou dit huisves totdat die TFA 'n gepaste plek gehad het waar dit met eer vertoon kon word. Jay hou van die idee. (My hoop en drome destyds was dat die TFA eendag 'n soort museum sou hê, waar ons met trots al die wonderlike items wat die TFA -argief bevat, kan vertoon).

Die kennis van Jay oor die presiese geskiedenis van die stoel was beperk. Sy het geweet dit is in Thomaston Maine gemaak en in opdrag van haar oupa Henry Warner Tenney. Ek het grootgeword in Maine, nie ver van Thomaston nie, en het geweet dat Thomaston 'n gevangenis daar vergemaklik het, wat jare lank bekend was vir sy handgemaakte houtprodukte. (As kind op ons Sondagsry na 'nêrens, het my ouers gereeld by die winkel in die gevangenis gestop om te kyk na die items wat die gevangenes gemaak het).

Henry Warner Tenney is gebore in November 1858 in Boston, hy is getroud met Belle Lewis Topliff in 1880. Teen die geboortedatums van sy kinders en met die benaderde ouderdom van sy seun op die foto, word beraam dat hierdie stoel gemaak is in 1891. Hy is die man met die dik snor. Sy vrou Belle is in 1901 op 40 -jarige ouderdom oorlede. Hierdie foto van Jay & #8217 se oupa en familie kan gevind word in die Tenney Times -uitgawe #10.

Die agterkant van die stoel is beslis met die hand gesny en is gemaak van een stuk hout. Dit meet 21 ″ hoog by 16 ″ breed en is 7/8 ″ dink. Die Griffins se regteroor, op 'n stadium voordat ek dit ontvang het, het gebreek, maar is weer aangeheg. Daar verskyn ook onder die boonste Griffin, 'n effens ligter vlek, en twee klein speldgate. My raaiskoot is dat daar moontlik 'n metaalplaatjie aangebring is.

Die stoel se sitplek is gemaak van 2 stukke hout wat aan mekaar vasgemaak is. Die hout van die sitplek is taai, maar ek kan nie identifiseer watter tipe dit is nie. Die bene is beslis van eikebome, wat maklik herkenbaar is.

Die stoel, ongeveer 122 jaar oud, is in 'n ongelooflike goeie vorm en baie stewig. Dit is duidelik dat dit nooit as 'n stoel gebruik is nie, maar 'n kosbare erfstuk van die familie. Hopelik eendag, ons sal kan dit met trots in ons TFA -museum vertoon, soos Jay en haar gesin vir 3 generasies gedoen het.

USS Pennewill

Alus tilattiin Newarkista New Jerseystä Federal Shipbuilding and Drydock Companyltä, missä köli laskettiin 26. huhtikuuta 1943. Alus laskettiin vesille 8. elokuuta kumminaan Lucie Reilly Pennewill ja otettiin palvelukseen 15. syyskuuta ensimmäisenä päällikkönään John Edward Allen. [1]

Läpäistyään koeajot alus siirrettiin Trinidadiin saattuetehtäviin. Alus suojasi 20. marraskuuta saattueen TJ-15 Trindidadista Recifeen, jonne se saapui 5. joulukuuta. Alus kuului joulukuusta 1943 huhtikuuhun 1944 TG 42.2:een, jossa se suojasi saattueita Trinidadin ja Recifen välillä. Tuona aikana aluksella oli joitakin erikoistehtäviä kuten suojata 25.–27. joulukuuta Yhdysvaltain laivaston joukkojenkuljetusalus USS State of Marylandia Trinidadista San Juaniin Puerto Ricoon ja 21.–22. tammikuuta brittiläistä tankkeria Destinyä Recifen edustalla TG41.4 tankkauksen aikana. [1]

Alus saapui 26. huhtikuuta Bahiaan, josta se seuraavat kuukaudet partioi USS Memphisin kanssa. Alus lähti 28. heinäkuuta Recifestä Nataliin, jossa se poistettiin Yhdysvaltain laivaston palveluksesta 1. elokuuta ja otettiin Brasilian laivaston palvelukseen. [1]

Brasilian laivasto nimesi aluksen CTE Bertiogaksi (hawe. Contratorpedeiro de Escolta ) runkonumerolla D-21. Alus palautettiin 30. kesäkuuta 1953 Yhdysvaltain laivastolle, joka antoi sen heti takaisin. Alus poistettiin 1975 Brasilian laivastoluettelosta ja romutettiin.


Gibson ES-175 Variations

Gibson ES-175 Special Wurlitzer (1955)

The ES-175 Special Wurlitzer was a custom-ordered ES-175 that was thinner than the standard ES-175 and trimmed out like a Les Paul.

The guitar was custom made for guitarist Andy Nelson who worked as a clinician and in sales for Gibson in the 1950s.

Nelson pitched this streamlined ES-175 model to Wurlitzer stores and even ran a spot on WBBN radio that Wurlitzer sponsored. Though we know them today for jukeboxes and pianos, in the mid 20th century the Rudolph Wurlitzer company was a musical instrument distributor and dealer.

Gibson ES-295 (1952-1959)

Price Range: $2,600 – $18,600

The ES-295 Archtop is essentially an ES-175 with decorative gold paint and a variety of decorative details. A sunburst version exists as well.

The ES-295 is made famous by Scotty Moore, the guitar player of Elvis Presley.

Featuring the same body specs as the ES-175, the ES-295 featured:

    • Two P-90 pickups with white covers. In 1957 the P-90s were replaced by Humbuckers. The humbucker version of the ES-295 is more valuable for collectors, that’s why you can expect to pay a minimum of $13,400 for a 58 ES-295.
    • A clear pickguard which was back-painted with a decorative design.
    • The floating bridge of the ES-175 was replaced with a trapeze tailpiece with the strings looping over the bridge.

    Unfortunately, the decorative gold paint did not stand up well to wear.

    Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis Signature Model (1991-2013)

    Price Range: $1,600 – $2,200

    The Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis signature was actually a re-release of the 1953 ES-175 that Ellis played for years.

    Originally, the ES-165 came out with a single Gibson 490R humbucker, and single volume and tone control.

    In 2004, the ES-165 was re-released, but this time with the Gibson 490R humbucker being replaced by a BJB floating humbucker. The volume control was moved to the surface of the pickguard.

    Gibson ES-775 (1990-1993)

    Price Range: $2,500 – $6,000

    The Gibson ES-775 is an upscale version of the ES-175 and was shortly produced between 1990 and 1993.

    The guitar features a three-piece maple neck, gold-plated metal, and an ebony fingerboard.

    The ES-775 sounds a bit mellower compared to the ES-175 because the neck pickup is closer to the fingerboard.


    Seven Years’ War: Background

    In the early 1750s, French expansion into the Ohio River valley repeatedly brought France into armed conflict with the British colonies. In 1756, the first official year of fighting in the Seven Years’ War, the British suffered a series of defeats against the French and their broad network of Native American alliances. However, in 1757, British Prime Minister William Pitt (1708�), often called William Pitt the Elder, recognized the potential of imperial expansion that would come out of victory against the French and borrowed heavily to fund an expanded war effort. Pitt financed Prussia’s struggle against France and its allies in Europe and reimbursed the colonies for the raising of armies in North America.

    Het jy geweet? Quebec is the largest Canadian province by area, and the only one whose sole official language is French.


    9/11 Attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.

    At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City, instantly killing hundreds of people and trapping many more on the building’s higher floors. Eighteen minutes later, a second Boeing 767 appeared out of the sky, turned sharply toward the World Trade Center and sliced into the south tower. As millions watched the events unfolding in New York in horror, American Airlines Flight 77 circled over downtown Washington, D.C. and slammed into the west side of the Pentagon military headquarters at 9:45 a.m. Less than 15 minutes after the terrorists struck the nerve center of the U.S. military, the situation in New York took a catastrophic turn for the worse when the south tower of the World Trade Center collapsed in a massive cloud of dust and smoke. At 10:30 a.m. the north tower also gave way. Faced with the knowledge that the United States was under attack, the nation’s air traffic controllers began a frantic attempt to wrest back control of America’s skies.

    My Grandfather Arvo Lyyski was in Headquarters Company 3rd Battalion 315th Infantry Regiment 79th Infantry Division during WW II. I was hoping somebody might have a relative or friend that knew him then. He died in 1969 before I was born. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Arvo was from Michigan and Illinois.

    The ship was decommissioned on this date. I didn’t find any other Navy Muster roll records for him after this. I also couldn’t find a Veterans burial record that might have told me when he left the service.

    There isn’t much available about the Pennewill at all. Here’s the link to find out a little bit about the Anteus: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Antaeus_(AG-67)

    Hi Stephanie, My volunteer research group can help, completely free of charge. You can email me directly at dogtag73 (at) gmail.com Angelo’s Angels WWII Dog Tag Return Project. We’re on Facebook, too. I’d rather send you anything I find privately out of respect for the veteran and his family.

    I found a book in my old house belonging to a PFC Richard P. Goss A-6-3 Fort Dix, NJ 08640
    3-0 Platoon

    The book has some personal information in it and I would like to give it back to its rightful owner

    I’m not finding any Richard P. Goss in Fort Dix, NJ. If you email me, I’ll send you some possibilities. dogtag73 (at) gmail.com

    I found a book in my attic belonging to a PFC RI chard P. Goss of A-6-3 Fort Dix, NJ

    The book has a lot of personal information in it and I would like to give it back to its rightful owner. Any help that you can give would be great

    I sponsor the soldier william E Murray (36479306), killed in action on September 15, 1944 and buried in the American cemetery at Epinal (Vosges, France). I look for his family and all possible information about this hero. Thanks for your help.

    Pvt. Murray was the only son of William Eugene Murray and Ida Mae Brockman Murray. They lived in Granite City, Illinois. Pvt. Murray was born on 3 June 1924 at Granite City. This information is from census records and other records at ancestry.com. Thank you for your sponsorship.

    My father was Milton P. Geller, he served with the 1st Army, 18th Infantry. I have his Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart, as well as his Citation Letter for the Silver Star. I’d love to know what he got the Bronze Star and Purple Heart for…he never talked about any of it. Born 1920, enlisted in 1938, fought Rommel in Africa, landed at Normandy in the second wave, and liberated Nordhausen concentration camp. I have incredible photos that he took at Nordhausen and during D-Day training in England. How do I find his Citations for the Bronze Star and Purple Heart? Are there any websites with more information on the 18th Infantry of the Big Red 1?

    I am unable to help you with finding why he received those recognitions, but was wondering what company he was in. My grandfather was also in the 1st, 18th Division in Company C and I have been looking for many many years for more about him. Would love to know if maybe he is pictured in any of the photos you have.

    You could try writing to the National Archives and Records Administration. You can fill out a request on the internet, since you are his next of kin. If his records are available, they might be considered archival if he left the service more than 62 years from the date of your request, which means it might cost some money (probably less than $100). They might have burned in the 1973 fire, but it’s worth trying, because I’ve heard that they’ve reconstructed some of the records from other sources. http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/

    My family recently inherited a storage unit full of old clothes and other personal things. We came across a set of dog tags that we are unsure who they belonged to.
    The tags say:

    Kramer Frances L
    US Nat
    T55 56 F
    Protestant

    We’d love to know about the person they belonged to.

    Are these items that belong to a female? I found a Frances Kramer but I’ve got a feeling it’s not the right one, based on dates and service.

    It appears that Frances L Kramer was probably a civilian employee or a military spouse. The US Nat is short for US National. Spouses and civilian employees were required to have ID tags in order to fly on military aircraft.

    In which city was the storage unit located? That might help us narrow it down.

    Woops, posted the question under the wrong place. Can you please tell us what city the storage unit was in? It might help us narrow it down. I found a lot of Frances Kramer listings in Florida.

    Hallo! I’m proud to say that I am named after two brave WWII veterans. I know a lot about my great grandfather, Paul Griffith Stromberg Sr. who commanded a Maryland Guard unit and survived the war to go on to find the Howard County MD Newspaper and run for public office. I’ve always wanted more information on my Great Uncle, Lt. Paul Griffith Stromberg Jr. He served I BELIEVE with the 14th Air Force and was assigned to the 443rd troop carrier group as a co-pilot in June of 1945. His pilot and friend, Edwin F Thompson wrote a memoir called “Lucky Me” which features my uncle prominently as his friend and co-pilot of about 3 years. Sadly there’s a section called “Loss of a friend” which goes into scant detail about how my uncle died in a crash just after takeoff on just his 2nd flight as a main pilot at the age of 24. Lt. Thompson was clearly devastated as my uncle seemed to be his best friend during war-time. I love looking into family history and this is the first time I’ve found a good amount of info on my uncle. I was hoping to find anyone with a connection to the 14th Air Force or 443rd Troop Carrier Group or Lt Edwin F Thompson who lived a full life after the war. Any connection or information would be incredibly appreciated. A HUGE thank you for your service to any and all veterans who take the time to read this and thank you to any fellow civilians who have taken the time out of their day to read this as well.

    You may be able to obtain the IDPF (Individual Deceased Personnel File) for your great uncle from the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. It takes several months for NPRC to respond.

    You may also be able to obtain a copy of the accident report from http://www.accident-report.com. They charge for this service.

    My wife and I found a Purple Heart given to Private Virgil K. Elliott, Army serial # 37664425. K.I.A. in Europe 10/07/1944, all related documents. We would like to return to any family members.

    Virgil K Elliott was from Fairfield IA. He was a member of the 401st Glider Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne. According to family trees on Ancestry.com he did not have any children but does have living nieces and nephews. The trees that he appears on are maintained by distant relatives. I could try contacting them to see if they have any information on any of the living relatives.

    My father Donald Sweeney from Winooski, VT. Enlisted on Dec 30, 1946 in the Army. He was a TEC 5 in the European Theater. Dad was a Light Mortar Crewman and guarded and patroled in Coburg Germany. His duties were setting up check points, speed traps and looking for black marketeers. His separation was on June 16, 1948 at Camp Kilmer in NJ. As a self absorbed kid I never asked him about his time there. I would love to here from anyone who knew him during that time in Germany

    Hello!! I’m searching for some information on my Great Grandfather, his na me was Ralph Alvey Powell and he served as a US Navy Shipfitter first class from WWII through Vietnam. He was from Illinois and was born in September of 1915. I know a lot about his service career, but not much about him personally. If you remember him, or have a family member that does, please let me know. I would love to have a chat with you to hear more about him. Dankie!

    Correction: Ralph served in the Navy through the Korean War.

    I live in WA state. I’m looking for any information on locating local ww2 veterans. As you know, we are losing them at an alarming rate. My son and I would like to serve and honor them while we can as well as possibly recording their stories. If you can help in any way we would appreciate it.

    Looking for Calvin Bennett 790 78 77 who served in the USN during WWII. My mother Ada would like to know how what became of him after all these years.

    We are looking for Philip E Hull Ww2 dog tags. Also, we would like to be in contact with those who knew him.

    End of 1944, he was station at Camp Maxey as a guard. Then went to Indiantown PA (via Camp Gruber). March 25, 1945′ sailed on Queen Elizabeth, to Scotland, to South Hamptom, to LaHavre, the to Hellcats as a Tech 5. Sometime he was part of 2nd army (Lt Crouse) and then then 1st. After the war, he was a typist. He said one of his jobs was processing women that came from death camps.

    On the Elizabeth, he slept in a swimming pool and worked in the officers mess.

    He played ping pong and read a lot.
    At time of enlistment, He lived in Richford NY but, prior to WWII, he lived in Africa, England, Alaska and California.

    After the war, he was on leave, hitchhiking from Gerund to Stuttgard. He got a ride with two fellows, he was in passenger set. They had a wreck–I believe a bridge was not strong enough. My Father said he was sole survivor.

    I have an army jacket which my South African grandfather traded his own for with an American. There is a number in it. G-6949 and this is written in a larger F. A bit hard to explain but if anyone knows anything about numbers or codes that could help, I would be so grateful.

    The G-6949 is a laundry mark. It consists of the first letter of the last name and the last four digits of the service number. There was a website that would allow for a search using this information but it does not appear to be working.

    Wow, I looked at that website and there’s at least 41 individuals with that laundry mark. Think you might be out of luck in running this one to the ground. Would take a world of research to get through that list. Much luck in your endeavors.

    My dad served in the 8th Army during World War ll in the Philippines and in occupied Japan. He received at least one Bronze Star, maybe two. Looking for anyone who may have served during this time-a long shot I know, or anyone who knows anything about the 8th Army or Robert E. Kirk and World War ll. Thank you in advance.

    My father served in World War II and Im trying to find anyone and/or anything about him during that time. I dont know, just want to connect to ones who may have known him. William Francis Dyer. Im not sure which ship he served on, was 17 years old I believe. He and his best friend hoped to be on ship together but as my father could not use his step fathers last name (Holter) he had to go by Dyer (spelling) and never saw his best friend again – that ship went down. the men on it first initials of last name were G, H. Dad passed away in 1995, never talked of service, and do understand but, would love to know that part of his life and the ones he served with. Thank you for reading and for this site.

    There are a couple William F Dyer on the Navy Muster Rolls. Do you know when or where he enlisted?

    Hi and thank you for getting back to me. Dad enlisted in Kansas City Kansas I believe. His step fathers name was Roger Holter. He was enlisting under that name (Holter) but as grandpa did not “adopt” him, he was told he had to go by the name Dyer (not really sure of how last name was spelled) he was born Aug 11, 1924.

    None of the William F Dyers or William F Holters in the Navy Muster Rolls match the information you provided. The Social Security records show he was born in 1926. He appears in the Census and Social Security records under both names. He also appears on two separate family trees on Ancestry.com as William F Holter.

    You can write to the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis for a copy of his Navy records. Their website will tell you how to do it. As a child you should receive the entire file. It will take several months, however. You can pay a private researcher to pull the records and you will get them faster, usually in a week or two. I recommend Golden Arrow research. http://www.goldenarrowresearch.com/

    Hi and thank you for checking for me. I do appreciate it. Ill try to find out more. I do know when he returned from service, he had his named changed legally to Holter. Ill check the places you suggested. God bless and thank you. Also, thank you for serving.

    The following dog tag was found in Vicenza, Italy: Rainey Walter, Jr. RA12563157, T58, Baptist. The founder would like to find the family to return it.

    Last name is Rainey, Jr..
    First name: Walter

    I am looking for survivors who served on the U.S.S Tulagi. Contact me through this email address. [email protected]

    I have this project and we went to a Sematary and we wrote names down but I can not find a web sit to find out any information on him.

    I’m looking for information on who would have been a black man in his 20’s named Alexander (he would be in his 80’s now). His unit would have been in Morlenbach for three months starting on March 27, 1945. If anyone has any clues that fit the above criteria, pretty please email me.

    Hi I am searching for USAAF airmen (and relatives) who were POWs in Belgium during WW2 and may have been on the ‘phantom train’ which the local resistance saved from going to a concentration camp in 1944.

    If you know a veteran in the Vacaville area, please let me know! You can contact me VIA email.
    My email is [email protected]
    Dankie!

    I found dogtags while going thru my father’s personal items. I would like to locate the owner of the tags and return them to either him or a family member. The name on the tags is Robert H. Akridge, with the # 34338276 and followed by T-42-43-O.

    Can you please contact me at [email protected]? I work with a volunteer group that helps research military memerabilia and I can help you get the tag back to his family.

    Robert H Akridge with that serial number was from Alabama. He passed away in 1986. His wife passed away in 2014. He appears on a family tree on Ancestry maintained by a great niece. He has three living children. I will contact the great niece to try to get contact information for his children.

    Mr. Fitzgerald … Thank You for your assistance.

    Mr. Fitzgerald, there’s a couple of Robert H Akridge’s to look at.
    Verified Data
    Serial # 34338276 –
    DOB is 1921, nativity: Alabama
    Residence: Dale Co., Alabama
    Enlistment: 8/18/1942

    Option 1 – Robert Akridge
    Birth:26 Nov 1921
    Enlistment: 9/1/1942
    Death:23 May 1986

    Option 2 – Robert H. Akridge
    Birth: 12 Oct 1921
    Death: ?
    Wife: Effie Pentecost, died in 2012. As of her obit, he’s still alive. Still verifying that he is the correct Robert H. Akridge.

    What makes you think I did not look at both of them? The Robert H. Arkridge who died in 1986 was the one living in Dale County Alabama at the time of enlistment.

    I recently found a dog tag from WW2 belonging to a Mr.

    With a “P” in the right hand side I’d love to find the owner or family please help I’m running out of resources! When I look up the army serial # it said his name was William spelled with 2 “L” but on the tag itself it’s only one so I’m perplexed

    Quick question, Does it say on the tag his middle initial is W or T? Looking at the enlistment contract it says his middle initial is W.

    Im a West Point graduate Class of 2012, I am honestly honored and dumbfounded to meet those veterans of WWII. I stop everyone in the VA hospital as often as I can to show them my appreciation in Gainesvilled, FL. I know I am young and don’t carry a lot of public value, but honestly I want to carry these stories beyond anyone and I love meeting those who fought the toughest fight. Much appreciated.

    -Best,

    A marine corp medal was found in a unclaimed car in a tow yard. In a box of antiques, was this very old medal. There was a piece of paper in the box with the name Walter Nugent Hibson on it. How can I find out if he was a marine? If he is still living I would like him to have it back or at least get it to his next of kin. If he was given it, then he certainly deserved it back.

    I am looking for any information regarding my uncle, Bert Stanwood, who was killed in WWII and buried in France. I am his only living relative. I can’t seem to find a government site that would give me any info, only ads for a membership to Ancestry.com. Info on how to search the right sites would be very much appreciated. Dankie.

    How much more info can you give? Is his first name Bert or Albert? Do you know approx. when/where he was born?

    my dad, Myron Lewis Jones, PT boats. can’t find a thing, appreciate any help.

    I don’t know if I’m posting this in the correct place. I have requested my dad’s service record from WWll. Hopefully they escaped the fire. Does anyone know if his DD214 will have the story of why my dad received a Bronze Star or just that he received one? Dankie by voorbaat

    Wanted to inquire if anyone knew what kind of pin or badge this is…WWll battle of saipan was the location …shows name rank and serial of st sgt david dugdale ….but why it is issued is unknown

    This is a privately made token. These were custom made in a machine where you turned a wheel to line up the letters to impress them on the token. The machines were often found at carnivals and similar venues. I have seen a handful with wartime messages all of which were from the Pacific. I assume there was an R&R site somewhere there that had one of the machines.

    i have one of the token with me that we found here on saipan. any guidance an information about family and relative is appreciated.

    Looking for information on army enlisted charles edward peters jr. Helped liberate buchenwald concentration camp. Wife is mary Louise peters. He passed away in 1989.

    My father is now deceased. I am trying to get a picture of him in uniform as no one in the family seems to have one. They are putting the Veterans picture up lining our streets. I so want a picture of him on the pole outside of my home to recognise his service to his country. In the service he was known as Pfc Elwin R Barnes 33 462 091in the Army. His discharge paper says 3043rd Grave Registration Company, Seperation Center Fort George G Meade MD. He insisted he was in the Infantry. Can someone please help me out?? Dad was in the service before I was born. I loved him dearly and feel he deserves to have his place of being honored for serving his country by putting his picture up for all to see.

    Did anyone serve in the 5th army with my dad, Andy Broderick from jersey city
    NJ or with my uncle John Duffy in the Coast Guard?
    Love to hear from you
    My dad drove a munitions truck

    When was your uncle in the CG? What company in boot camp?

    Hello, my friend has a Baha’i prayer book in which there are dates and 17 different locations beginning in California in April 1944, then through England and France to August of 1944. The dates and 10 more locations start again in different hand writing in April of 1945 through September 1945, ending at Camp New York, Riems.

    I realize this is a long shot, but we thought it would be really cool to try to find out the units involved or more. The first soldier was most likely a Baha’i. It would be neat for us to try to find out as much as possible as Baha’is at that time were few and far between.

    Is anyone familiar with the best ways of doing this sort of thing backwards since we do not have a name or any other info aside from dates and locations.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    I’m looking for information on a relative of mine, his name was Lowell A DuBois, SR and on his headstone it says TEC5 US ARMY, WORLD WAR TWO

    Just trying to learn more about my family if someone can help me! Dankie.
