So I'm doing an intensive Winter school at the moment...started today.
It is called Researching Family History.
I found out today that my Gran (Dad's mum) made books for the oldest children in her son's families...except the youngest son because he had no kids before she died.
I managed to get my cousin's copy (Dad's side).
Check out how thick that is!
I'll be honest, I cried while reading some of this because I never knew my grandparents. Family is so important to me and I wish I knew more of them better. I can't wait to meet them in the eternities.
I never knew that one book could change so much about myself. Learning about my family gives me more of an understanding of where I've come from. I am really excited to get into more of this.
I'm getting my sister's copy on Friday and I can't wait to see what it has on my Mum's family as well. My Gran was one heck of a woman. Even my lecturer recognised her name from my pedigree chart.
