This site is dedicated to the memory of Alan Guy Collings 1914-1989, a
wonderful father and great human being. 'sui generis'! The Collings family of East Anglia has its roots in Norfolk as proven to date,
but today the family spans the world. ' hic et nunc '!
The Collings of East Anglia through DNA turn out to be Vikings on a Saxon shore. We have now joined hands across the ocean with the family of Jensen, roots in Norway
The Vikings are back ! |* PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER THAT THE MAIN FEMALE LINE OF THIS TREE ARE ANCIENT BRITONS -
OR CELTS - DNA 'TARA' *NO PART OF THIS SITE MAY BE USED FOR PROFIT OR GAIN OF ANY KIND NOR MAY
DETAILS OF LIVING PEOPLE BE PLACED ON ANY OTHER SITE OR THE INTERNET. Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I’d exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.
