Family heirlooms From The Past

One of the favorite TV shows in my house is Antiques Roadshow. You may be lucky enough to have something passed down from an earlier generation. This does not have to be an expensive painting or chest of drawers. Some of the most precious items could be family photos or letters. Both of these can help tell a story from your family's past. Imagine if your ancestors had left England or Ireland to start a new life in the United States Of America. What if you had a photo of that family on board the ship taking them to their new lives. A letter back to the old country in those first few weeks telling of their new lives would be just as precious. Have another look at all your old photos and letters ,you may find out some new information that you had overlooked.
