Good Morning Fellow Historians,

The stories of lives forgotten continue to leap off the pages of my grandfathers letters. He was not a famous man but he lived during an historic time; the great depression. The events taking place in the world and in his own community only compounded the events taking place in his family. His health was failing and he was near death. My grandmother would be left with 4 young children to support. His thoughts and views are part of history as they certainly were influenced by the times in which he lived. These stories are buried in everyone’s family and we need to uncover them. Search your attics and storage areas for the stories of your family. Uncover them, share them and save history.
