The one thing, that has started everything for me, and that I treasure, is a photocopy of my mothers family tree in her baby book. It was hand written by my maternal Grandmother. Unfortunately someone has made notes on the photocopy, but I hope I can get a fresh copy from Mom someday soon. What I love about it most, is Grandmothers handwriting, so beautiful.
There are many other items, that I will share later, but this is simply my favorite. I wish I could write like that.
“We wallow in nostalgia but manage to get it all wrong. True nostalgia is an ephemeral composition of disjointed memories.” – Florence King via Quotations Book.
