Many people will count items that remind them of their family history among their most valued possessions. In this story we take a look at a few reminders of our ancestors’ life’s. — Story Guru

I have always loved having reminders of my family from past generations. I have an old trunk that I was told came from Ireland in 1865 when my ancestors, John and Kathleen O’Mannion and their four sons, set sail for America. It still has the travel stickers on one end.
I have my grandmother’s gold locket inscribed with her maiden initials from before she married my grandfather. I also have a complete set of eight depression-era dishes my grandmother collected over time.
There is nothing quite like special family pieces to bring back memories.
These are wonderful reminders of your family’s past! Thank you so much for sharing, Sandy! — Story Guru
