I have also been attending some of the largest family reunions held in Richlands, Onslow County, North Carolina this year. The Sanders/Saunders reunion is known to the be largest family reunion of its type in Onslow County. They even hold a street parade through town.
During family reunions ask Elders questions about their past--the good, the bad and the ugly. Instead of just listening to them, write or record their response to your questions.
Later you can transcribe their comments and make a wonderful keepsake for your next family reunion.
The adventure continues...
