Family History

I was watching an episode of Antiques Road Show tonight and thinking how lucky some people were to be left items that had been passed down through the generations.
On tonight's Antiques there was a collection of postcard size water colour's that had been painted by a young man in 1860.He was abroad somewhere in Africa and he had sent these paintings along with a letter to his parents to show them what life was like over there.What a wonderful thing from the past to have. The owner of the paintings was the great great grandson of the painter and he said that he would never sell them.
