My Ancestors Signature #18 ~ Thomas Hayes Sr

Signature 3D Word

How many of you have searched for any kind of photo of an Ancestor and you weren’t able to find one? Especially for one who lived before photography was invented? Have you ever looked through documents like wills, or marriage licenses and you discover that your 3x Great Grandpa had signed it? This signature is a little piece of him that was left behind. By posting it online we can preserve it for future generations.

  1. That’s a great find. I was thrilled to find a document in the archives that one of my ancestors had signed – thinking that they’d actually touched that piece of paper!

  2. Reblogged this on stricklands' blog and commented:
