Why Family History Matters
Capture Family Memories - Notions of people, places and events pervade our thoughts, a legacy of our parents’ and grandparents’ memories, stories recounted and folklore passed down through generations.

- Old letters, photos, newspaper clippings and personal documents lying forgotten in a corner.
- An old timepiece, a medal or jewellery on display. Silent reminders of past lives.
