Back to our roots

My grandma and her family is from Naperville. Her parents and grandparents were one of the founding families of Naperville following the Civil War. I'd heard for most of my lifetime about this town, and seen tons of pics of my family photos set here. My Gramma asked me to go with her to a North Central Homecoming game, where she even ran into friends she went to college with 60 years ago. It was too cool to see this town through the eyes of someone who grew up here in the early part of the century, and to hear more of our family history. If there is a town like Naperville that harbors your family history, I urge you to go back and see it through the eyes of someone who called it home.
