|About E. R. Shipp's Family
Welcome to what I hope will be a collaborative effort among my relatives on both my mother's side of the family and my father's. I have been dabbling at this for about 20 years off and on. I am excited now that there are so many records available online and so many genealogical programs like this one, Tribal Pages, that facilitate communication and sharing of what we know about our families. Now everyone can be a reporter/researcher if he or she has a smartphone or a digital recorder -- and curiosity. Capture your own memories from back in the day. Then email the recording to me. Talk to some of the elders. Record them on audio and/or videotape. It may just be that you happen upon someone who's in the mood to talk and reminisce. Hit "record"! Take pictures, too.
I invite you to share stories and pictures and recordings, maybe even old recipes. This can be fun and, if we do it right, can be an invaluable tool for those coming after us. Please spread the word among my verrrrrry extended family and invite them to join us in this venture.
