Recently on a trip to Colorado, we visited a small museum in Sanford, Colorado, where I was able to find pictures that I had not previously seen before of each of my grandfathers . If you ever take a trip to Southern Colorado, I highly recommend that you take time to visit this wonderful museum. Information about the museum can be found here: Sanford, Colorado Museum. I truly had not expected very much, knowing that it was housed in a very small location, but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only were their displays wonderful, but they had volumes of pictures, books full of obituaries and newspaper articles and the lady that helped us was great. I could have spent days in there and in fact my family began to worry that just maybe I would try. I finally gave in though and we moved on, but I came away with some priceless pictures.

I could go on and on about what I remember and what I've been told about my grandparents, but I will spare you that. The longer I do genealogy, the more I am aware of the part that each generation plays in the next generation's life.
