My Grandmother kept records of her life. It is with honor that I share her family letters, post cards, documents, and pictures with family and others to enjoy. Below are pages from my Family Trees and Memories book.

Grandma’s Treasures

 I don’t remember a lot about Grandma Katie but I learned a little about her through precious memorabilia she kept throughout her life. Her keepsakes mapped a sweet and loving trail of her life and bits of her struggles. Many years ago, Dad gave me her scrapbook, documents, and later, we found a suitcase containing cards and letters she had kept since childhood. It was clear that she loved and prized family and friends. She saved childhood valentine cards, graduation cards from nieces and nephews, thank- you notes, post cards, letters, and photographs. As I learn more about blogging, I want to share her letters and cards so we can all appreciate her sentimental heart and know the sweetness of Grandma Katie Carrie Sullins.

Since I am a real greenhorn at blogging, I welcome helpful suggestions as how to proceed in sharing the wealth of family history documents, pictures, and letters that are in my care.
