We insulated the ceiling of our old house today so I had to clean the attic out-found a whole bunch of old boxes-talk about family history-full of pictures from the late 1800's of relatives in Scotland. Lots of orriginal documents-homestead claims etc-several years of our local newspaper-diesel was 22 cents a gallon the week I was born. There are hundred of letters from the first and second world wars from my Dad and uncles when they were fighting. Some pretty sad stuff in some of them as my Grandmother's sisters and brothers passed away back overseas. Also years and years of the ranches tax records-the cost of things has gone up lol.
