This blogging journey is not new for me. It has just taken another form. Previously I have been keeping a diary documenting my research into my parents’ past, primarily their experiences during and right after World War II. I always knew my mother kept documents and letters from those years and I knew they were in her attic. When she suffered a stroke, my brother and I sold her home and I took many of her personal affects home with me including the box in the attic.
