A Precious Heirloom.


This is my Grandmother’s gorgeous vase. She died in 1980, 10 years before I was born, so I never knew her. She was very much into genealogy, one reason being that she was adopted. She passed down her love for genealogy to my Aunt & Uncle. My Mum didn’t catch the “gene bug” which we call it in our family. It skipped her, and I caught it instead. My Aunt gave me my Grandmother’s vase in 2009. When I have children, I will pass it down to them…and hopefully they will catch the “gene bug” too! When my Grandmother died, her children (my mum, aunt & uncle) were not able to have much of her things, so this is very special, especially since my love for genealogy comes from her. <3
