For many years I have been collecting photos of and information about the various signs that have been placed in honor of some of my ancestors. These signs are a glimpse into some event and/or a place where they lived. Some of the signs are small like a placard with a few poignant words, some are large, and these go into great detail, and then there are those that are somewhere in between. Each one gives added life to those ancestors.
