About Gardner Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
My family tree is dedicated to my dad, Edward Raymond John Gardner 1932-2010
My partner in crime with digging into the family tree. He was a true Welsh men & was never happy 
when people thought he was English...His words were ''I'm bloody Welsh & Proud of it''
He like i always loved this term .... "Genealogy -disturbing the dead,and irritating the living"

"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 story and to feel that somehow 
they know and approve.
 
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, 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 
it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: "Tell our story". So, we do.
 
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I 
have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would 
be proud of us." How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there 
for me? I cannot say.
 
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It 
goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't 
let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing 
something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they 
contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never 
giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to 
deep pride that the fathers fought, and some died, to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep 
and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.
 
It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could 
not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born who we are. 
That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their 
existence, because we are they and they are the sum of who we are.
 
So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next 
generation to answer the call and take my place in the long line of family storytellers. That is 
why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and restore 
the memory or greet those who we had never known before."
