The box of “bits and pieces”

posted in: Uncategorized

Records about your family may hidden away in linen cupboards or in the box of “bits and pieces” stuffed in the back of a cupboard. If you have an elderly relative that tells stories or offers to “find that piece of paper” they are sure they have somewhere, encourage them! Check in and ask if they had any luck, prompting shows interest. With camera’s on mobile phones it’s easy to take a photo for your own history file, however always ask first so you don’t offend! One of our members found a copy of a broadcasters listening licence that was in an elderly relatives box, in her relatives day, you needed to licence just to listen to the radio!
