Saturday Night Genealogy Fun

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to: 

This SNGF is based on the 100 Word Challenge (http://100wc.net/) that school children around the world have participating in over many years.  They are given a word or phrase to write a story about in exactly one hundred words.  

1)  Write a story using the phrase “Grandparents are important because” in 100 words.

My grandparents were an integral part of my life growing up. Besides being role models of their Christian faith, the greatest impact they have had on my life is encouraging me to research my roots.

Grandma Crawford initiated this journey with her desire to know where her grandmother, Julia  Harding Hutchinson was buried. Both of my grandmothers shared everything they knew about their roots as well as their husband’s roots. They also shared the family photos and items they had saved over the years.

Now almost 40 years later, I’m thankful for that nudge to begin my genealogy journey.
