Her son has purchased a scanner and is downloading all the things that she had. I didn't realize that she has a copy of my great great great grandfather's naturalization papers!! And copies of enlistment and discharge papers for another relative from WWI! And copies of birth notices!!
He sent me about twelve scans so far. I can only imagine what other treasures that there are!
I'm so excited!
When my grandmother died last year, her personal jewelry was split between me and my cousin. It wasn't worth much in monetary terms, but had emotional value to me as several of the pieces had belonged to her mother and mother-in-law. My cousin didn't care one bit and has given her items to me. I was very glad she did that instead of just selling them!
