“What Mama Said”

Women are so often lost in history.  We want to do a little something to reverse that unfortunate trend because everyone deserves to be remembered.  This year at Finding Your Roots we want to give a voice to all the women in our lives who have made a difference.  Maybe they weren’t famous but they made an impact in their own world and in their own way.  We invite you to send us those pithy statements of what your mother or grandmother or even great-grandmother taught you or passed down.  You can send funny quotes, sayings they often repeated or life lessons you will never forget.


Put those pithy (short and to the point) statements in an email and send them to:[email protected]
  • We will include them in a special video presentation for the enjoyment of all who attend.  After the Fair, the video will be posted on our website.
  • One lucky entry will be randomly drawn and awarded a DNA kit from Ancestry.com
  • We reserve the right to exclude anything that is offensive, inappropriate or not family friendly.

Remember:    (Send Your Entry by emailing us at:  [email protected])
