Famed and world renowned actress Elizabeth Taylor passed away on Wednesday, March 23, 2011. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind and her words moved many. As we look inside ourselves and remember the gift that Elizabeth gave us, we’re reminded of one of her quotes: “I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.”
Ancestry.com allows you to look behind doors all of the time. In the spirit of Elizabeth, we looked behind some of our doors and found quite a few records of Liz. Included was her birth certificate, pictured here.
We also found her on a passenger list from the ship that brought this talented actress to the United States.
Survived by her family of four, Elizabeth’s son said that we lost the last great legendary actress.
Her memory will always be in our hearts and minds.
