In an effort to document my family treasures which cannot be scanned in, I am publishing this series of pictures as part of the Treasure Chest Thursday theme at Geneabloggers. Someday in the future, I hope to shed some light on these treasures for my family who might inherit them. What were they for? Who did they come from? Why were they considered treasures? Let’s find out.
Rock from the Park
This rock was picked up at a park in Saginaw, Michigan by my best friend, Jennifer (Strachan) Peck. She knew I liked rocks and she happened across this shiny piece, so she picked it up and gave it to me the next time she saw me. That was back in the summer of 1989.
It has chunks of quartz that shimmer in the light. There’s no particular reason that I kept it – I just liked it. Jennie gave it to me so it’s a symbol of our friendship.
