The Sepia Saturday photo at the end of this post shows an old country store. The photo provides a variety of themes we Sepia Saturday participants could write about this week. The potential theme was “time and time again.” I’ve decided to tweak the theme a bit and share with you two timeless treasures in our family.
These timeless treasures are my Grandma Ingrid’s Books of Remembrance.

Following the death of my dad in 2009, I started doing research on his side of the family. He was researching his family lines and I’ve been researching my mom’s side of the family. Now I have the privilege of researching the ancestry of both of my parents.
Grandma Ingrid’s Books of Remembrance are chock full of photographs, documents, pedigree charts, family group sheets, written life stories, and more!
You can imagine how absolutely thrilled I was as I perused the contents of these timeless treasures.
I’ve already shared with you a photo from the pages of the Aqua Book of Remembrance in my previous post Workday Wednesday–Arthur's On the Job! ~ Part 1. And I’m looking forward to sharing many more photos and the stories that go with them from these amazing books.
Timeless -- ageless, everlasting, eternal…yes these Books of Remembrance truly are Timeless Treasures to the descendants of Ingrid Gilberg.
Thank you Grandma Ingrid for taking the time to create these wonderful books.
