These are the family heirlooms I would save:
1. The Family Photo Albums
The first thing I would save in the event of a disaster is the family photos. My children's baby albums and school albums, as well as the 'regular' family albums. Fortunately my photos are either in archival quality photo albums, archival quality storage containers or are my computer (which I have backed up!). I can scoop and run! My family photos are very precious to me.
2. My Family History
3. Grandpa George's Pencil Drawings
Girl & Boy Pencil Drawing by Joseph Brinley George circa 1922, Llanstadwell, Pembrokeshire, Wales. Digital Image. Privately held by Kathryn Lake Hogan UE, [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE,] Windsor, Ontario, Canada. 2008.
4. Grandma and Grandpa George's Silver
This beautiful set of silver was given to my grandparents, Joseph Brinley George and Dorothy May Evans as a wedding gift. We used this silver at all of our family holidays and celebrations at Grandma and Grandpa's house when I was a child. It has great sentimental value to me.
Should we ever need to evacuate, I hope all of this would fit into my vehicle with room left for the family and the dog!
