I was given a book by my grandmother, the year before she died.
My family as a rule has been involved with genealogy. And interestingly enough, even on both sides, and from different backgrounds and outlooks, I still have roots that are rich with genealogy, reasearching ancestry from long ago.
The Book is beautiful in it's plainness and simplicity. And equally beautiful in it's contents.
It is a 3 ring binder and old style b+w xerox pages with holes punched along each sheet of paper. Inside is 100+ pages of family genealogy. The title of the book, 'The Family History of John & Guinevere McQueen', these are the names of my father's parents.
