VoxFox BS: Family Keepsakes: Part 2. (22) RE: BS: Family Keepsakes: Part 2. 21 Feb 02

My father passed away when I was still in my teens and back then I was always in a world of my own to really get to know him, I am ashamed to say. So any little snippets I get from Mom and her sisters(when I get to see them,One still in England and the other lives 4000 miles across country), I write down on whatever is handy at the time. This I then squirrel away in a large shoebox until I get the chance to write it all down in my journal. Surprising the things you learn just listening. Like his nickname (Chick), although I never heard anyone call him that. I have started my own version of a family tree and so far Ihave collected all the names the elders can remember but sometimes a name or a story arises and there I go with my scraps of paper. *BG* I guess I'm the "historian" in the family. :o) .As I said in the first thread I never met any of the family on Dads side as they were in England and I've only known Mums two sisters so whatever news I gather is precious to me. They are all in their 80's so my news gathering time is limited, (Ihope not but...) Enough from this peanut gallery. Love to all. VF
