  1. An interesting article to me since I have a dulcimer that is over 100 years old and it was made down in that same part of the state of Missouri. It is not of the tear drop shape but like the ones we use now. My cousin had a friend that made the dulcimer I have and he gave it to her over 50 years ago. Her husband gave it to me a couple of years ago. I have the makers name, date it was made, and the kind of wood used.

  2. That sounds really interesting Barbara. You should bring it for show and tell some time!
