After seeing the new National September 11 Memorial Museum, one victim's widow decided to donate one of her husband's Fire Department of New York paramedic shirts, karate uniforms and beloved baseball jersey.Since the museum's May opening, victims' families, survivors, rescue workers and others have come forward to add about 135 new donations to its collection, chief curator Jan Seidler Ramirez said.Relatives have brought new photos or recorded new remembrances to profiles of the nearly 3,000 victims. The museum anticipated and welcomes growth in its collection of over 39,000 objects, photos and oral histories, and officials see the new donations as a vote of confidence.Some new donors to the Sept. 11 museum hadn't realized everyday possessions could be museum exhibits. The family held off until visiting the museum.
