My Family Treasures

A family treasure is an item that holds a special meaning to your family. Perhaps it’s an old photograph or a piece of clothing you used when you were a baby. Through these special items, we can learn so much about our family history. Do you have items that are extremely special? Collect them and record a short video explaining their significance to you. Share the video with loved ones during a special family event!
