My Grandmother Dorothy Couch Robertson gave me a special hankie when I was a young adult. It's white with lace around the edges. This belonged her mother and I will hand it down to one of my four daughter's on their wedding day.
I have been doing genealogy for 28 years. My Great Aunt Ella introduced me to this fascinating adventure when I was a teenager and boy did I get hooked. She inspired me and taught me the importance of my roots and where I came from.
