Video: family trunks revealed during house remodeling

From WBRZ News 2 Louisiana, an ABC affiliate in Baton Rouge comes a thrilling story which gives hope to genealogists and the belief that we should "never give up".

Evelyn Bates lived in a house on Government Street in the 1930s. For some reason several family trunks were enclosed in walls and only recently discovered when a chiropractor who now owns the building was renovating. What a joy this must be to have these precious family heirlooms come to light.

The video located at: is breath-taking. I wish something like this would happen on my family tree, particularly where my infamous, mysterious & frustratingly elusive ancestor Dolly Yockey is concerned.

Happy family tree climbing!
