    RQFC-topic: Masons Surname BABB
    Message:: I am researching my families histories. I am finding many with reference to being Masons. One in particular that the family relates is the following: For a short time during the civil War in spring of 1862, General Grant forcibly occupied the house of Catherine Babb wife of James Babb. It was after Shiloh and on the march to Corinth. After seeing a Masonic book belonging to Matthew Jefferson Babb on a table, the officers had the family moved to another dwelling and treated the property with respect. This legend has passed down from Matthew Jefferson Babb's son Daniel Wesley Babb writings to all the decendants with pride. There are other Babb family members mentioned but I would like to know how I may find more information on the families. Thank you

Is there a way that I can learn about what happend to records? It's a sensitive subject and my Dad does not like to talk much about it. My objective is to study how Free Masons allowed the principles of logical positivsm to finalize it's hold over deomocratic ideas much like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Castro have done. I'm concern because it's slowly happening here in America a well. It's time we stand and flick on the switch our founding father's gift of " The Enlightenment"

    RQFC-topic: INNOVATION IN MASONRY
    Message:: Recognising that we are bound 'not to make innovation in the Body of Masonry', there must be ways of restyling our ritual in order to deliver the charges and educate our candidates in a more modern manner. I wouid propose that we should be using the visual aids of the computer projector to assist in the charges. As the average man has less time than forty years ago for ritual learning, let the charges be read competently and of course also in rehearsal. It should be possible to link much of the digitised displays on screen to the approppriate music to assist in creating the right effect. This would be of tremendous value in the third degree but other orders and ceremonies as well. Our advances in communication virtually demands that we take on board every modern application and in this way we may go closer to retaining the presently 'missing master mason', of which much has been written in the last few years. As the editor of our W.H.J.Mayers Lodge of Research 'LECTERN', I am on the lookout for new ideas to place before the Brethren who read our Newsletter. Please refer me to any new papers you know of who have been "at the cutting edge" of innovation in style but 'not in the Body of Masonry'.

    Message:: My grandfather John Paul Larson was a Mason, but I don't know too much about that. What I am trying to find out is: What relationship did the Masons and the International Order of Good Templars have with each other? My grandparents from Ostersund, Sweden made Seattle/Everett their new home in 1923. My father's sister and her husband (Kristine and Claus Spute) managed the Hall in Seattle downtown which was called the I.O.G.T. Hall. I remember being there many times as a child. I really would like to know its history. I don't even think the building is there anymore. Thanks, Anita Friedenberg
