Here’s Your Sign #4 ~ Arthur Lee

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.

  1. This is cool! There’s a lot of historical markers in my area for historical cemeteries and I love reading those, plus signs of individual people who lived in the area. Also! I bought your book on Kindle (Your Family History…) and am looking forward to reading it.
