Announcing: 52 Things

Not many girls would appreciate an old steamer trunk for Christmas, but Ol’ Myrt here sure does. How about this beautiful model? It was made by Indestructo and sold at what was historically the downtown department store in Salt Lake City – ZCMI (Zion’s Cooperative Mercantile Inc.).

So what’s the plan Myrt?

52 Things

A weekly blog post with video update detailing which family heirloom, original document or bits of ephemera I’m putting in this old trunk along with my homemade journals to share with my grandchildren the stories their ancestry. 

It’s part of my plan to share my family history in ways my grandchildren will find a tad more interesting than black and white pedigree charts or family group sheets.

Since I’ve already gathered a list of over 100 items to share, my biggest challenge is to decide which to share in 2021.
PS – For those of you who know me well, you’ve perhaps noticed the interior doors and drawers are my favorite color – light aquamarine. 

Thanks for the most thoughtful gift Mr. Myrt.
Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     🙂
