I would do almost anything to play with my older sisters ,so when I was four and they told me I could not play school with them unless I learned to read and write, I did just that. I fell in love with letters, words and books.
Grandmother was the keeper of her family heirlooms, letters, journal and ephemera. I used to spend much time with her reading the letters and stories her father wrote. She and I explored her father's journal - a recording of her childhood. Best of all I loved to hear her personal memories of the same moment in time.
These hours together naturally led me into genealogy.
