A short post on this cool summer morning to share a photo..
My daughter and I help in our church's Family History Center twice a month,
and on our last visit, I found this photo had been added to our family tree.
Her name is Matilda, and as I gazed at the photo, I became lost wondering about her.
The dress (oh-so warm in summer) the pin (a gift or maybe handed down?) & shawl
(surely handmade), the clapboard home behind her with the pretty window trim.
And those stately hollyhocks..so beautiful. I wonder if she loved them as much as I do...a trait handed down through the generations, maybe?
Have you done any digging into your family tree? What treasures have you discovered? You may want to give it a try...there's so many wonderful stories and photos to bind the generations.
