1943-1946 newspapers covering WW2 that came from bases overseas, some are stars and stripes papers.
World War 2 war ration books full of ration stamps.

railroad train operators handbooks from the 1930s.
G. I. Joe card game.
World War 2 various documents and papers, some are german weapons to be released to a U.S. soldier.
a 1896 check like promise to pay certificate, looks like a personal check.
I have more things I would like to find info about, but if anyone can help with these, it would be greatly apreciated.

Contact your local veterans group about the war items. They may not be worth a lot monetarily, but sound like excellent items for a WW2 exhibit. Your local vets could use them in an exhibit, perhaps at schools or in a museum. I think you’ll want to keep the bible for your own family. Contact a book restorer, and find out what you can do to preserve it. Copy down the family history, and start a geneology site. I think you can have a lot of fun with this stuff, mostly by sharing it.
