Family reunions are times to preserve your heritage.

I have had a very busy summer with the all African American cemetery preservation project and research that I have exclusive rights to conduct.

I have also been attending some of the largest family reunions held in Richlands, Onslow County, North Carolina this year. The Sanders/Saunders reunion is known to the be largest family reunion of its type in Onslow County. They even hold a street parade through town.

During family reunions ask Elders questions about their past--the good, the bad and the ugly. Instead of just listening to them, write or record their response to your questions.

Later you can transcribe their comments and make a wonderful keepsake for your next family reunion.

The adventure continues...
