I am sure that you have many family heirlooms. Are their photos available that show your ancestor using the heirloom? Have you written down the history of the heirloom?

You may know for sure the history of the heirloom. However, it is important for others to know as well. You may not be able to “tell” them the history verbally. But, you can “tell” them the history by providing a written history and photos.
