Talisman

For most of my life I have been researching my family, finding little bits of info here and there. My grandmother gave me some land deeds and letters a long time ago, c 1800-1880’s. Recently more artifacts came to me after the death of an uncle and one I carry with me in my wallet, in a zipper. In a way it is a tailsman, a lucky liberty head penny from 1848. My great great grandfather may have held it at some point. It’s like being able to hold his hand, or call him up.
