AfriGeneas Genealogy and History Forum
In our Culture we seem to have traditions I hope that do not get lost. When people attend there is a booklet at the door where you can sign your name and address and a family member can send you a thank u card, for attending their families funeral. Sometimes it gets put away for many years. In this booklet there is a gold mine of information of names and addresses of family and friends for future research. After bereavement someone shoule copy this and save it to a computer and give copies to family for safe keeping. One day a family griot will need it. Do this for any family member he may pass on. This would have saved me a lot of money if only a cuzzina and pulled it out of those old papers. There were names there of cuzzins I never knew existed.
