What's The Coolest Thing You've Inherited From An Ancestor?

"When our relatives pass away, we become responsible for their legacy."

Often times, belongings are passed down from generation to generation so they always stay in the family. Maybe I'm just having a 23 and Me moment, but I'm super into that!!!

So has something beautiful and meaningful and gosh darn FASCINATING ever been passed down to you?

Maybe you inherited all of the love letters your grandpa wrote to your grandma while he was stationed in Vietnam.

Or maybe you were gifted your great-great-grandmother's wedding dress when you got engaged.

OOOOR perhaps you were given a cookbook full of ~SECRET~ family recipes after your grandmother passed away.

So if you've inherited something ridiculously cool and meaningful from a relative, leave a picture and/or a description in the DropBox below! Our faves may be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post or video!

P.S. — If you try to be cute and say, "I INHERITED MONEY!!!" you will be promptly ignored. WE'RE LOOKING FOR QUALITY SUBMISSIONS HERE, PEOPLE!!!
