Family treasure







I am so lucky to be the caretaker of many of my family heirlooms and treasures. My favorite is an old ledger book that contains the "minutes" of family reunions that started in 1875. The last entry is for the 38th reunion in 1913. Each year family members were nominated to be the next year's Pres, Vice-pres, Treasurer and Secretary, how neat is that!!
