I am enjoying participating in this series from Aona at ttpw.gouldgeneogy.com/2012/05/take-the-family-history-through-the-alphabet-clle
T is for:
|One of the many World War One postcards |
sent back from Flanders
by my grandfather William Danson
to his family back home.
Telegrams. We perhaps associate telegrams from the past with dreadful news from war fronts. Here, however, I was lucky to find, after my parents' deaths, these happy momentoes from their wedding in 1938 and the time when they were separated through war in 1940.
|Wedding telegram sent on the occasion of my parent's marriage in 1938|
|Sent by my father to my mother January 1940 |
when he was with the MInsitry of Defence in London
|Winter transport in Earlston, Berwickshire |
From the postcard collection of the Heritage Hub, Hawick
|A charabanc outing - from my Great Aunt Jenny's collection|
I have so much to be Thankful for in my family history activities.
So to summarise - Family History is Terrific sometimes Tantilizing, sometimes Thrilling, often Theraapeutic, and I have no intention of Terminating my interest.
