    That was a great episode! It has given me so many ideas. Michael, what you said about having people write everything they can remember about a picture really stood out to me as my grandparents left so many pictures that we don’t know the stories about. Dan, I had a few really great conversations with my grandparents and great-grandparents that I have kicked myself several times for not recording. 😦
