Special Family Mementoes
During your research you may come across special family mementoes, souvenirs, antiques or artifacts. China, needlework, jewelry and military items are only a few examples of treasures that may be passed down through the generations.
In some cases, they will be donated to you because of the passion you have for your hobby of genealogy. At other times you will only be able to view these special family mementoes at the homes of their owners.
If the latter is the case, hopefully you will bring along your camera and/or camcorder to record this special family treasure.
Whether this item is in your possession or not, a record of its existence should be made. Complete one form for each item you come across during your research.
