I have really enjoyed going on lost family treasure safaris inside the antique stores and flea markets. Finding the proper owners for these precious keepsakes really means a lot to me. I have been able to reunite three item so far with family members. The most meaningful one; to me; was the Powell-Hansley Family Bible. I would like to share with you an excerpt of an email that the family member sent me:
"I have been trying to make a dent in my family ancestry for Hansley. My father is James W Hansley who passed in October 2001. I am very much interested in possessing that bible. I lost family possessions and have very little to go on. Please tell me what information you would need from me. I truly believe that the Lord has answered my prayers. You are an angel sent from above. I believe that finding your site was designed by God's purpose."
I have also enjoyed being a part of this wonderful genealogy community. You guys rock! Now let's eat cake!
