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: http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/8610117.html 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!
