In the next few weeks, many will gather with family for the holidays. Probably not as big a group as usual. Please take time during your visits to listen to stories. Put the phone down, mute the game on the TV, and let your parents or grandparents tell you family stories… and listen.
I started working on my family history years ago, unfortunately, after my grandparents had passed. It was a challenge trying to remember their stories about our ancestors. If I just taken the time to write some things down or ask more questions.
The Brentwood Historical Society is always interested in hearing stories about our town, especially when they come with a picture, like the story of the Carpenter family in our recent post. If your family has stories or pictures to share, please contact us at: email@example.com
