Explore Old Family Heirlooms

What kinds of old family heirlooms do you have around your home?

      Every family has "old things" that have been handed down through the years from ancestors. It could be a pair of great grandpa's glasses. Try them on. Touch them. How about a poem written by an ancestor on an old piece of paper, or an old letter? How about grandma's old dress? Or as to the right, touch great grandpa's old medical instruments.

      How about grandma's doll, or her old wedding dress? I have an English Oak wooden vase that my father created while in high school about 1945 that sits in our living room.

      It is important that our children and grandchildren explore those heirlooms as it helps to connect them to their ancestors.
