Fantastic!

About 30 years ago I met a distant relative who was 100, and it was really interesting to hear how things were around 1900 when she was a girl.

whats really sad
                        is we did nt start researching till it was to late
our own parents and grandparents where gone, so many questions without answers
photos in suitcases but whos in them,
what ever happened to granda s brother wounded 5 times at the somme
we know why he was wounded he was a piper we know he survived
married twice once unlawfully had kids but then where did he go,
so wish we d started searching earlier.
