I finally dug into an old trunk that we have (that we plan on taking apart because it's falling apart and taking up room in our bedroom). There is a lot of history there. My mother died 16 years ago so I ended up getting a lot of her personal history things - yearbooks, school pictures, wedding album, her medical journal, cards from her funeral, etc... I also have some of my dad's things (certificates, etc...) as well as mine and dh's sentimental stuff from childhood and beyond. There is not a lot of stuff and I will weed out the few things I don't want to keep but right now everything is just kind of thrown into this trunk. I'm not sure how I should store this stuff. It's not really stuff that we look at regularly but I do like to look at it now and then and I think it will be nice for our kids to have eventually as there really is a lot of interesting family tree type stuff in there. I thought of rubbermaid totes but we already have so many of those for our regular stuff I wasn't sure that was the best choice. I would like it in some sort of container that can be stored away in a room somewhere.
