I’ve always been interested in my family history. I know my paternal grandmother has been researching the family tree for the past 15 years; I’d seen the book she’d produced when I visited, and she’d share her discoveries with me from time to time, but I never really had the time to just sit down and pore through the book when I’d visit.
That changed this Christmas. My grandmother made copies of the book and gave them out as Christmas gifts. I don’t know how my relatives felt about this, as I haven’t spoken to any of them aside from my siblings, but my brother, sister and I were all justifiably excited by this treasure trove of genealogical gold we’d received.
