I remember a time in elementary school and in high school, where I was tasked to do school assignments involving my family tree. I remember hating it each time. Why? We didn’t have an established family tree. Most of the white kids around me had trees that reached back to when their ancestors came to America. We most definitely did not have that.
Now we have Ancestry dot com, and all kind of services that will help you put the pieces together. I have a good skeleton of my mom’s side. I need to get with my Aunt Shirley to work on my dad’s side.
Every time I come home, I like to look through the old photo albums my mom has. She has given us all our baby books to take home, but for some reason my oldest brother’s book is still here. I was looking through and found photos of my grandparents on both sides. It’s so nice to have faces to go with the names. Both of my grandfathers died when I was very young, so I have no memory of them.
I have found so many today, and I still have more albums to look through. Do you have any old family photos? Do you have a family tree?
