Your point is a valid one. But some times, great-grandpa's stuff gets held on to just because it was great-grandpa's. Some of it may still be there, waiting to turn up. But I grant that it might just as well have been lost in a fire or destroyed if its context/meaning is lost to those who own it now, as it may never see the light of day.
