Family History Art, Puzzles, Paintings and Displays in the Home

"Those who have gone beyond can see us better than we can see them; they know us better than we know them. We live in their presence, they see us, they are solicitous for our welfare, they love us now more than ever." President Joseph F. Smith









What are some things we can do in our homes that reflect the love we have for our ancestors?

James Gardiner b 1921: January 30, 1939 Sunday, Went to Sunday school and meeting, administered the sacrament for both meetings. Measured my height and found it to be 5ft. 9 11/16 inches. Had my haircut by mom for the first time since I was about 4 years old. Huh? I surely must have needed one. Studied Geometry for about an hour. Adjusted crystal on crystal set during the afternoon till I could hear KSL (Radio Station) and could hear music pretty good but couldn’t make out speech. After dark I got another station with the set. It was KFDK Sacramento. That makes 10 stations I have heard with the Philmore Crystal Set.
