Of all the funeral cards, that circulate out there, I wonder how many ever find their way back to the families of origin. A simple funeral card is the summation of a life lived.
Enjoy the discovery process.

Follow Friday - Lost Family Treasures by Leslie Ann Ballou

Lost Family Treasures by Leslie Ann Ballou is a delightful genealogy blog.  Each post leads from one treasure to another in Ballou’s unique style.  She transports you back in time as you visit her collection of artifacts and mementos.  It truly is a treasure hunt from Ramona’s Flea Market to Pink Antique Store.  Or maybe a visit to Great Grandma Piggott’s treasure box while on the way to the Smedley’s jewelry box filled with costume jewelry.  The Piggott treasure box is filled with birth announcements, special programs and holiday cards galore.  On the business and educational side of life, Leslie shares items like estate lists, ledgers, wills, school report cards and cabinet photographs.  Interspersed among all the finds are beautiful photos of handmade quilts and hand-woven rugs.  Leslie Ann Ballou is a must visit in the genealogy blog world as she ties everything beautifully together in her creative scrapbook way.
