Family history research

The palest ink is better than the best memory – Chinese Proverb

Years ago, I found myself in a shop, looking through a box of old photographs.  The people staring back at me surely had stories to tell but the photos told me nothing, other than these people had once lived and I decided to do what I could to record my own family history to ensure it too did not end up the same way.
