• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Gustav Becker Dating question

    Hello all. First of all, my utmost respect for John Hubby - your posts were a leading light for me in the search so far... My great grandfather bought the GB in the early 1900's and it has been in our family ever since. It stopped working a decade ago (or so) - nothing dramatic, over time it...

    My First Clock - Gustav Becker

    I just purchased my first ever clock and I'm curious for as much info as I can possibly get about it! From my understanding it's from the 1890s, but curious as to who took over or what happened as GB died in the 1880s, so I would take it this clock is not truly a GB clock? Any and all info...
