from my email:
Another more positive way of keeping dates of people we love is
to maintain a birthday book. I started mine fifteen years ago and
have also added death dates of close relatives and a few friends who
have died since 1991. We do not keep a Bible with family dates, but
this book is important to me. People always enjoy being remembered on
their special day! The book also includes some wedding anniversaries.
Over the past fifty-two years of marriage I have also kept address
books, and they are fun to look back through. My mother's address
books are also in a file, because one never knows when that
information may be important to a genealogist!
