Family Histories

The Story Tellers

We are the chosen …

In each family there is one

who seems called to find the ancestors;

to put flesh on their bones

and make them live again,

to tell the family their story

and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

Genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts;

instead it is breathing life into

all who have gone before.

We are the story tellers of the tribe.

All tribes have one.

We have been called as if it were in our genes.

Those who have gone before cry out to us:

“Tell our story.”

And so we do … in them we find ourselves.



This section is for family histories.

Just look to the left and pick the family that you would like to take a look at.

If you would like to have some of your family information on this site, I can set up a tab for you. You will then need to send the information by email to me. We can use pictures on this site but it is hard to place them where you might want them. The web site choses the placement.
