Yesterday kicked of the inaugural Barron family reunion. It was a great time. This was an opportunity to meet family from all over the country: California, Florida, Massachusetts, and New York, some of whom I haven’t seen since early childhood, or at all.
My family has deep roots in Connecticut and to hear some of the older members recollect of times past is comforting. I had tried to convince my grandfather and great-aunts to record as much family history as they could recall, but they never did. Luckily there are still members who hold the past in their memories.
