What would you want to see in a heritage based display?

Since I am hosting the Graham Clan tent next year at the Portland Highland Games, I need ideas as to what people would want to see of their heritage if they were visiting a tent about their family history. I have banners, maps, books, tartan, flags and some other things planned out already.

What should I add to my displays? ANY INPUT IS WELCOME! :-)

    What trades were your clan known for? Any working man loves to see the tools of his family's trade! I miss the Highland games, grew up in Beaverton, one of the few family events that couldn't be missed.

    I like the family crest, my wife and I had ours printed a few years back, they were side by side with a nice mat and frame, I wouldnt take anything for it. We keep it on display in our family room. The both stayed very busy all weekend.

    You know that God created Whiskey to prevent the Irish from taking over the world. We exsperienced a Whiskey tasting both that had all of the Scottish and Irish Whiskeys. Belive me you can spend some time at that one.

    There is a MASSIVE whiskey tasting that the Highland Games has every year. I like that idea but I don't know if the association will allow a clan tent to give out booze lol!!!

    I do like this idea. I will have to do more day to day life research on our heritage as opposed to what major events we were involved in.
