I think that I shall never see, A finished genealogy.
 They say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when 
somebody says your name for the last time.
"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because 
they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who 
will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those 
unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this 
because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual 
people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are 
― Richard Dawkins  
You own everything that happened to you.
         Tell your Stories.
If people wanted you to  write warmly about them,
they should've behaved better.

          DEAR ANCESTOR 
Your tombstone stands among the rest; 
Neglected and alone. 
The name and date are chiselled out 
On polished marbled stone. 
It reaches out to all who care 
It is too late to mourn. 
You did not know that I 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.

 Come, look with me inside this drawer, 
In this box I've often seen, 
At the pictures, black and white, 
Faces proud, still, serene. 
I wish I knew the people, 
These strangers in the box, 
Their names and all their memories 
Are lost among my socks. 
I wonder what their lives were like, 
How did they spend their days? 
What about their special times? 
I'll never know their ways. 
If only someone had taken time 
To tell who, what, where, or when, 
These faces of my heritage 
Would come to life again. 
Could this become the fate 
Of the pictures we take today? 
The faces and the memories 
Someday to be passed away? 
Make time to save your stories, 
Seize the opportunity when it knocks, 
Or someday you and yours could be 
The strangers in the box.  Welcome viewer,
Sometimes, I wish I could go back in a time in a machine and really get to know our ancestors. How 
do you piece together a life that nothing more than a census statistic or a newspaper factoid? How 
does one reach back in time and pull them to us? Feel what they felt or see what they saw. How did 
they deal with the unique times they lived? Did they handle adversity with strength and honor? Did 
they ever feel despair? Did they have a sense of humor? Were they admired? Reviled? Were they good 
to others? 
We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted... Each of us contains within us 
this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, 
sacred memories and future promise. I can only ponder what small decisions my ancestors made that 
is still affecting my life today. What ways do their actions still define our lives, and, perhaps, 
our children and their children, this will always be mystery that hangs over us. Maybe that is my 
purpose in this collection, to record our history, to preserve for my descendants an insight to 
who we were. Maybe we will be better people and life will have more meaning if we believe we will 
not be forgotten. 
I do believe that one’s immorality lies not in some heavenly afterlife but in the legacy of 
memories left by us, stories told by those who knew us and the curiosity of those 
who know we once were.
As with all genealogy sites, I strive for accuracy, however, not all persons in this tree were 
directly researched by me. Some of the more distance branches I took on faith of accuracy of the 
source and gave credit to them. Tom and my direct ancestors have been research and documented 
or are in the process of being researched by me or another reliable person. So I stand behind 
their accuracy and I've noted if there is a question on lineage. If there is anything that is 
grossly inaccurate, please, email me and I will explain it or change it. I want to have a broad 
data base of names in order to cross and match with other trees. If one finds a hint here, futher 
research can be done.
Lastly, I want it noted that I didn't do this by myself. My mother,Beverley, laid the foundation 
for our family tree and gave me an interest. Many cousins contributed their own branches. Hub 
Braun, Lynn Thompson and Kim Bitto and others gave me much information for which I am grateful. 
Anyone who wants to add more or note corrections, please, contact me. There is always room for 
more. Stories or memories are especially needed.  
This packrat has learned that what the next generation will value most is not what we owned, but 
the evidence of who we were and the tales of how we loved. In the end, it's the family stories 
that are worth the storage.
