I am trying to write along with some of the prompts from the sits gals for this month! I thought it would be a good way to get some flow going 🙂 If you want to check some of the prompts out for your own blog you can find them here: Writing Prompts for September 30 Days of Prompts
I have always been interested in family history and I was lucky to be able to spend time with my grandparents, including my great grandma for summer vacations , weekends and more as a child! I Know that a lot of people never really even get to know their grandparents, and I know that I have said it a million times I was VERY lucky to be able to know my great grandma for 26 years of my life!
I know that in 8th grade we had to do some sort of elaborate family history project and that included doing grave stone rubbings to get bonus points on it! I think this kind of got my mom more into working on it, and she has really went with it over the last few years especially. She has elaborate files and folders, her own facebook group of family docs and pics and of course is a member of several as well! Pretty well anything I want to know about either side of the family would be readily accessible to me!
Actually there is even a book written about my family called “The Man From Knox Creek” and it is about how this dude named Howard Little basically murdered a whole bunch of people in my moms family!
I love the old family stories and legends and all of that kind of thing and I hope that some how over time i can get some of them preserved a little more. I also love having access to all the pics and info as well 🙂
