"Heritage and tradition are the threads that link us to our past and guide is into the future, one generation to another."
I have been interested in genealogy since I can remember. I for the last five years I have been actively trying to compile a family tree. As I have been working I have found I have names, some pictures, and a few stories. My father has now joined me in my quest. It has helped and I truly enjoy the trips to the cemeteries and his recollection of facts. (He is getting really good at computer skills)
It is amazing how fast recollections of grandparents fade. Pictures of family parties show a loving and happy time, the favorite aunt or cousin's name forgotten.
I would love to hear stories anyone can remember, not only of old folk lore but maybe you siblings or children.
A picture exchange is a great idea. I'm sure every family member has a picture they would love to see and have. Maybe together we can put names to the pictures.
