*The year was 1970. It was June, and we had earlier that week attended my grandmother’s funeral. Grandpa told their children to go through all the trunks and such in the basement and in their room. He couldn’t do it.
During this time, documents and letters and photographs, (that had been there since Grandpa and Grandma first moved in) clearly telling about our family history, were discovered. My mother and one of her sisters were put in charge to organize them and to find out more information about our family’s past.
Then one day, my aunt passed on and last year, my mother.
Now it is all up to me to take what my cousins have and what I have and make our family history make sense and share that with each other.
I have enjoyed this journey immensely and am sharing this love of researching for others, including you, if you would allow me to help you, too. Every family has a story and every story has a place to share with others or to keep for your own.
