… I have so many questions I would ask my parents.

Family History Writing Challenge – Write about someone you regret not asking more questions of when they were still living. 

I’d ask my Mom and Dad all about their parents, childhood and family life. About how they met, fell in love and married. About the challenges they faced and how they overcame them. About their hopes and dreams.

I’d ask about their travels and adventures. We’d go through the hundreds of photos with no information on them and they could tell me the stories about their friends and family I never met.

I’d show them the family tree I’ve made and they could help me fill in the blanks and tear down the brick walls.

We’d have such fun, if I could turn back time.

I’d like to know: what are some unanswered questions you have about your ancestors? Who else might be able to provide answers.
