Fearless Females Inherited Heirloom

Well I inherited my grandparents house and all its treasures. My grandparents bought the house in 1924 and lived there till they died. My biggest interests were in the garage as my grandfather was a carpenter and woodworker, so I got a lot of old tools, but the real treasures were in the house as my grandmother was kind of the family historian and collected the Kelly bible, and news paper clippings from hundreds of articles (None with dates or which newspaper it came from) but most pertaining to the family. I just wished I had listened more to her stories, but I guess all of us wish that same thing.

  1. Well, first of all, I'm very envious. I'm a pack-rat but my parents weren't! I think that's why I prowl the flea markets. I'm trying to create instant clutter.
    For what concerns the newspapers clippings, I've noticed that online newspaper archives are popping up more and more when I google Quebec topics. Recently I found some very interesting articles about the early years of Ville Lasalle, my child-hood hometown. So I imagine if you type in some of the sentences you're eventually going to get useful links.
    Have a nice day,
    Evelyn in Montreal
