If your parents or grandparents are still alive ask them about their lives. Ask them where they came from, what they did, how they lived. Because one day they won’t be around to ask. And you may not think it but our heritage is important. We are what we are because of our parents and our grandparents. Values get passed down, traditions get passed down. Don’t leave it until tomorrow because tomorrow doesn’t come for everyone.
My biggest regret is not finding out about my dads history. And now here I am doing this project on Blackhall and I know very little about my family when they lived there. I get snippets of information from the Blackhall folk and I treasure every one, but how I wished I had asked him when he was alive about his life.
