Gifts on Paper

35. A note my grandmother wrote to my father upon entering the Marine Corps

36. The signature of my great grandfather, Morton Augustas Teachout 

37. A page from the family bible of my 3rd great grand uncle, Edward Freeman, 
leading me to proof that he and my 3rd great grandfather, Henry Freeman
were born in Barrow, Rutland, England

Keep some souvenirs of your past, 
or how will you ever prove it wasn't all a dream?


  1. Our ancestors are from the Shire! :-)

    They sure had beautiful handwriting back then.
