VoxFox Family Keepsakes: What have YOU kept? (104* d) RE: Family Keepsakes: What have YOU kept? 18 Feb 02

When my parents came to Canada after WWII, they couldn't bring a lot from Birmingham GB so most of what we have left is photos and other small things. Now,Mum is still living (87) and being the practical woman that she is, has already given each of us what we wanted from the house so that there will be no quibbling when she's gone. Other things have name tags stuck on the back for the grandchildren and so on. My only regret is not getting to know our grandparents or aunts from England. I was born in Canada but the others were born in Britain but were young when they came over. Now they are all gone and the sad part about that is no one even let us know when they had passed. It took a phone call to the aunts house one Christmas to discover that she had died months ago, (the last of the line). Sorry for the rant but I'd love to know if she/they had photo albums and what happened to them. Just call me dreamer... Love this thread. VF
