My family and I visited my grandparents a few days ago. When my Grandpa mentioned some old memorabilia he had from his mother, I could hardly wait to look at it. We all felt like we had found treasure as we looked through old pictures and letters. Watching my parents and grandparents remember long lost relatives or try to find out who some of those people were was amazing to watch. It’s strange thinking that I have so many relatives that I’ve never met or heard of.

I got the same excited feeling I get while walking through an antique store….except this time the feeling was multiplied by 100.
