Finding the Old Homeplace
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
Finding one's past can be as simple as locating the old homeplace. It creates a special sort of memory, one which you did not have originally because it was before your time. This lovely old lake with geese is absent the old house. Yet, I still experience the feeling that "I am home." This is but one of the ways that searching for ancestors becomes real. You know that your families lived their generation building a homestead and a special sort happiness from having the family work together, oftentimes on old farms. The generations of the past paved the way for our freedoms and the great wave of technology which we are experiencing today and which assists us in finding them. Imagine that!
