  1. What a neat idea! Handwriting is a very unique way to capture someone's memory.

    1. Hi,

      Thanks so much for your kind comments! I'm glad you like this idea of sharing some of my ancestors' signatures. I saw it done on someone else's blog and loved it. There really is something special about seeing the handwriting and signatures of our ancestors isn't there?

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a great idea Jana. I'm on a mission to collect signatures for all of my ancestors, but I've never considered adding them to my blog. That will have to be a project to tackle in the near future.

    1. Hi Queen Bee,

      I can't take credit for this idea since I saw it on someone else's blog. But I do love the idea! There's just something about seeing our ancestor's signatures and handwriting isn't there?

      Thank you so much for stopping by!

  6. Jana,

    What a great idea, especially if there aren't any photographs of your ancestors.

      Thank you! I love finding the signatures of our ancestors and as you said they are wonderful to have especially when there aren't any photos of our ancestors available.
