I am working on some area history. I must be the local history
I want to know who used to live where all the lilac bushes are. What did they do…where were the country schools? Where did they come from and what were their children’s names? What happened to them..what does their dash look like?
I am also TRYING to get conversations started on the Historical Museums Facebook page. It is like pulling teeth. If we don’t record the history now it will be lost in a few more generations. OR maybe no one will care anymore. Well I care and I will keep bugging people to share what they know.
No one except God knows how many days are in your dash. You should make the most of what time you have on this earth.
I guess that goes for you blog readers too. Take the time to write down your family history, it doesn’t have to be beautifully written, just the facts will do, make copies and give them to your kids and then mail off a copy to the Historical Museum in the County where you were born and where your parents lived. Someday someone may be searching for that information. If your parents owned a business that is very important, send in the name of the business its physical street address and the years it was open.
I see many struggling Genealogists searching for answers. If everyone would just share what they know it would make a difference. I just know it would.
