The Power of personal STORY is INcredible!

This Family Memories Spotlight by Greg McMurdie is worth reading.

He says, “Wherever your ancestors come from, you’ve no doubt speculated on their journey
to this land – and the land left behind. …

Take time to read the genealogy breakthroughs in his spotlight
“then take time to preserve your family memories so future generations
can know the journeys, loves, and lives of ancestors.”

In the story McMurdie relates from the history of Carol Rice,
“Family folklore told of three German brothers who came to America.
One of them “jumped ship.” We knew of two of brothers, but we could
never find proof that the third brother who “jumped ship” actually existed.

But the story, passed down through generations, kept us looking.”

See what happens all “because of what hung upon a Virginia wall.”

What clues will help you solve your ancestry mysteries and
what family artifacts help you preserve family memories?
