Left Behind Family History
This post from Moore Genealogy deserves a broad audience so I’m reblogging. It’s a reminder to preserve/digitize/share our heirloom family photos.
I went out and read the post you shared. Makes me sad and I am grateful that I have all the heirlooms and photos my mom left me.Even I have pictures I can’t identify. To me, they are not just pictures but people who had families, lives with ups and downs, and their own stories that need to be told. I’m a good detective, even if I only was able to identify one, it would make a difference.
I love those synchronicities. Early in my family history searching, I was in the microfilm section of the FH Library in SLC, looking for the record of my father’s birth. I couldn’t find it in the roll for his birth county and year that he was born. So I started zipping through the microfilm and stopped for a moment. There on the ‘screen’ in front of my was my paternal uncle’s birth record, and I later found my two aunts as well. It may not have been what I was looking for at the moment, but it was several pieces of the puzzle!
Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I’d like to use your story in the Family History Class I teach periodically. Very inspirational!
