    I have nothing as precious financially, but emotionally -

    On my mother's side:
    2 Family Bible (one dating back to 1858)
    Christening gown made for my grandmother and worn by my mother & her siblings
    A tray cloth embroidered by my great-grandmother
    Letters from my grandfather to my grandmother, written during and after WW1

    On my father's side:
    Family Bible (entries going back to 1838 although Bible is dated later)
    A tankard won by my grandfather in a race in 1897

    I also have various books given as prizes to my parents etc.

    On my ex's side, he's got a shove ha'penny board made by his grandfather from the wood on the bar in the pub he ran.

    I think my sons will probably chuck most of these things in a skip, but you never know.

    The emotional items far outweigh the financial items Nel. My Dad’s Sunday School Book that he was presented with is priceless
