It’s Easter weekend and we’ve just added a new Easter milestone to the Twile timeline. Add your photos and memories from this Easter or from previous years.
We often get asked by genealogists why we have such “unusual” milestones on our timeline – they’re familiar with births, marriages, deaths, census, emigration, etc., but aren’t sure why they’d want to add holidays, Christmas or house moves.
At Twile, we believe that recent family events are as much a part of your family history as those from 100 years ago. If you don’t tell the story of your own life and your parents’ lives, future generations will never know the details.
I’d love to know about the various houses my grandparents lived in or where they went on holiday in their lifetime, but no census records or certificates can tell me that. I add these types of milestones to my Twile timeline so that my grandchildren will know what my life was like.
So whatever you get up to this Easter, take some photos and add your memories to your Twile timeline.
