The Stories We Want Told

Genealogy is about pinpointing our ancestor’s lines of decent, their place and time. Family History is about telling those ancestor’s stories, and our own. While I realize many family members do not share my passion for Genealogy, I know you do have a passion for Family History. I hear it in your voice when you tell me our stories.

We deserve to understand our ancestor’s struggles, contributions and place in this country’s history. They were there, and part of it all: War, westward expansion, the depression, to name a few. We should know. But we also have some good, old-fashioned murder mysteries and Indian stories in our family.

Curious about a family legend? Want to share a particularly fond memory? Have I got my ‘facts’ wrong? I’d love for you to let me know.
