Thanks to Geneablogger Anita Wells for the wonderful idea of creating a virtual cedar chest, with photos of family heirlooms - scarce in my family, so I especially treasure the few items we do have:
Grandfather William Schlegel - Prussian permission to emigrate document
My father had no idea this existed, until my aunt gave this to him shortly before she died.
Grandmother Sarah Schwartz - Glass fruit bowl
Per my mother, this was an inexpensive purchase made in NYC for everyday use, it is the ONLY remaining possession of my grandparents that I know of.
