This page is devoted to our family heirlooms which is a very important part of genealogy. Family treasures help connect us all in a personal way. Whether you’re sharing or viewing an item, photos and stories help link us all together. When my grandparents were young they were able to share their heirlooms in person by running across the street to visit with family. New generations have spread out across the world so we need to share via photos and stories. Family heirlooms past and current belong in this website. We have to think about the generations yet to be born. An item doesn’t have to be “old” to be a family heirloom. For example, if you are a collector send me a photo of an item in your collection so that your great grandchildren will know a little about you. If you have a photo of an heirloom that you would like to display, please email it to me (along with a comment) and help this page grow!
