Dear Ancestor poem - I often wonder, when working on genealogy, what ancestors like my great-grandfather would think of me and my interest in them. They likely had no idea that one of their descendants would be searching to find out who they were.
"I wish I had realized that family history is a perishable commodity. It disappears with time, as memories fade, and as loved ones pass on. I wish I had known that the most important aspect of family hi
"I am bound to them, though I cannot look into their eyes or hear their voices. I honor their history. I cherish their lives. I will tell their story. I will remember them."What a great quote about ancestry and researching family history.
