The Pleasures of Family History

While browsing through the back issues of the "Firelands Pioneer" via Google Books, I ran into this delightful quotation:

"The pleasures of history are akin to travel, and he who well understands the life of a prior period of his own locality, has traveled abroad."

This quote by Judge C. C. Baldwin appeared on page 2293 of the January 1920 issue of the "Firelands Pioneer." Of course in my mind, I added the word family in front of the word history....and changed the he to she.
