Are You My Cousin?: Thursday's Treasure

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Thursday's Treasure

This is my great-grandmother Winnie Haley Carr's iron. It's amazing how heavy this thing is. What a chore ironing must have been for her. I'm thankful for my electric one! Winnie's iron now sits on my fireplace as "home decor". I enjoy thinking about her when I see it.
