Happy Holidays

Christmas was great. It came upon me suddenly. Vacations in November may not be a good idea since you get home and plunge into Christmas. Our family was together and a good time was had by all. We attended a play “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” at the Swift Creek Mill Playhouse on December 26th. Now, it is time to think about the new year. Do you make resolutions? I don’t but this year my goal is to straighten up my family archives. Today a blog from FamilySearch caught my attention. All of the suggestions are good. Sigh, for me the hardest is “Organizing Your Documents. ”

My grandfather saved all his important papers. My Aunt Connie saved them and then many years ago my Aunt gave me my inheritance. The inheritance included documents, post cards, letters, and photographs. She passed them on to me.

My grandfather was from Palmi, Reggio d’Calabria. He came to the US in 1903 through Ellis Island. He stayed in touch with his family though. There was a lot of family in Italy. Two of his brothers and his nephews went to Argentina. My grandfather owned a print shop in New York City. He printed all sorts of things, pamphlets, flyers, newsletters, and books. I have two of the books printed in his shop. Since I like to experiment I created a web page for my grandfather’s family. I like to share.

Cheers to a great new year. My usual resolution is “Get Organized” but I think it is a losing battle. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
