I pick up books with interesting inscriptions…books like The Bridges of Madison County, odd works of art in old frames, abandoned Bibles with precious inscriptions inside the front cover and old photographs.
Then I go about a search…internet and Ancestry.ca, in hopes of connecting the object to its owner or a descendant of the owner. Some people are just not interested in the history or story behind objects and toss items that have, from my point of view, a significance to family and memory.
Here are some of my on going searches or searches that have found their happy conclusions.
