Genealogy is our families history our families stories, where we all came from. I, ironically, came from a long line of story tellers. My mother & grandmother would sit for hours telling & retelling family stories. My father, grandfather & grandmother on my dad’s side would also tell me family stories from their side. Our stories make us who we are.
I do genealogy so I can prove our family stories and pass them down to my children. So in turn they can pass them to their children… so one day when my grandchildren have their own grandchildren they will know the foundation that was built in the farmers field, on the factory line, in the milking barn, along the railroad line and through the experience of everyday life, that holds them together.
