Earl Henry Sthrome and Helen Katheryn Sibert were my Grand Parents. Each Christmas their family would gather at their home. I really miss those gatherings. The formal living was where the decorated tree was always placed. The heat was closed off to that room and the French doors shut to keep the live tree healthy.Each year Grandpa would dig up the Christmas tree with its large root ball. The same blue spruce tree would be used until it became too tall. I always felt that tree was special because of the efforts Grandpa put into having the same tree each Christmas. On any visit to their home that I saw that tree I marveled at how special I felt that Grandpa Sthrome would go to all that trouble. It was a wonderful tradition that is sorely missed
I married to Brenda K Green 26 April 1972  Ryan Lambert (the fourth RCL) was born to Richard Lambert and Brenda K Green 22 October 1971 at Landstuhl Army Hospital, Germany. . Our first Christmas together. We were living in Zweibruken Germany. Our landlord’s son showed up at our door with this little scrawny pine tree for us. We had no decorations and very little money to spare to buy them. We had bought a bag of walnuts which was cheaper than a bag of mixed nuts as was our family's tradition back home. We were cleaning some of the nuts and I thought about using the halves with cotton balls in them to glue cutout angels, manger scenes, and such from the Christmas cards that had been sent to us. A loop of yarn added and on the tree they went. We strung popcorn for it also. No lights but a homemade star for the top . As I think of that first Christmas with our baby son and the two of us and it was the most beautiful tree we have ever had. We had some of those first tree ornaments for many years until they all fell apart. I hope every year to find at least one of them when each year the boxes of decorations are brought out and gone through.
A Christian, Husband, Father, Grandfather. USAF MSgt. Photographer Retired; Certified Chef and Baker retired. To this day I love airplanes, photography, baking, and cooking. I have a great appreciation of well made guns both long and hand.
I am a loving and caring person. Believe it or not I have never hated anyone in my life. I hate what people do but not the person. Conservative in my politics. For me abortion is murder! I love my country and will defend it to my end!
I went to school in Oklahoma to learn horse training and shoeing because I always wanted a small hobby farm using horses to farm with. My favorite stories told by my Grandfather Sthrome were of his horses.
Recorded in over forty spelling forms from Lambert, Lambard and Limprecht, to Lambrich, Lambertini and Lemmens, this surname is almost certainly of very early German origins. As a surname it started life in the 12th century, but the derivation is from a pre 5th century personal name. This was 'Landbehrt', composed of the elements "land", meaning territory, and "berht", bright, and whilst the meaning may have been "Bright land", it may not have had a meaning at all! Nethetheless it is one of a group of 'made up' names, apparently extolling the virtues of land ownership, and territorial possession. Whether this was fact or wishful thinking, is not proven. What is known is that St. Lambert, Bishop of Maastricht in about the year 700 a.d, was highly venerated, and a source of the name's popularity. Examples of the early recordings include Gozelinus filius Lamberti of Yorkshire, England,in the famous Domesday Book of 1086, but clearly this name was not hereditary in the sense we know it today, nor was that of Tiddemus filius Lamberti of Hamburg in 1262. Another source of the name can be the Olde English 'Lambhierd', representing the occupation of lamb-herd, the first recorded namebearer being William Lambhyrde, in the 1255 Assize Court Rolls of Essex. Charles Lambert, aged 23 yrs., was an early settler in the New World Colonies, leaving London on the "Expedition" bound for the Barbadoes, in November 1635. The first recorded spelling of the family name anywhere in the world is believed to be that of Richard Lambert, which was dated 1148, in the 'Pipe Rolls' of Hampshire. This was during the reign of King Stephen of England, known as "Count of Blois", 1135 - 1154. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
