I came across a book by Patricia Polacco "The Keeping Quilt" which explains how her family kept the traditions of the past alive by making a quilt using many worn items from the past. The grandmothers would use the quilt to teach her grandchildren about their heritage and past. I have been wondering, what things do we use to pass on our heritage.
In my own life I have used stories and pictures. I have a good collection of pictures which I place in this blog and anyone is able to down load them. I also research stories, handcart stories, and others. Most recently I was introduced to a story about my mother's half brother through family search. I share these stories with family. However, I don't know of any physical object I might use. Except for perhaps the painting of Mary Ashton which was painted by Julia Rogers which I hand at my office and at home. It reminds me where I come from.
Wondering if anyone else has some examples of how they pass on their heritage, there "Sho we are" story.
