About Anderson-Brack-Hendricks-Schneider
I started entering information into this site in July 2003, and it seems to be  a never ending story, but a fun one to research. Once you have looked through  this site please sign the guest book at the icon above, and let me know  what you think. I would have never have gotten this far if it weren`t for a  few people that have helped me tremendously, they are Alice Faye Huitt  Preston, Jane Moore Singletary, Patty VanZant, Dena Rae Lacey, Sara Schneider  and Ethel Brack-Lock. They have all been willing to share information, photos and  documents with me. For those of you who have helped me by sending pictures and  updated information I thank you also.

In 2006, I was able to get a copy of The Brack Book 1973, written by Ethel  Lock (nee Brack). In this book is a poem that was written by Emil Brack on  March 24th, 1943, it was prompted by Emils whole family narrowly escaping  death by freezing. He wrote it to his nephew Harry. Emil was involved in  genealogy also, and I thought it would be fitting to place it here.

Many of those who follow me
 Descendents of the Bracks
 Will never care a whit about
 Retracing any tracks.
 They come and go and leave their marks
 Upon the sands of time
 But who is who, no one records
 In either prose or rhyme.
 The things they say, or do, or think
 Are lost forever more
 The moment that their last grandchild
 In death shall close his door.
 For who is there amomg us now
 Can tell of so-and-so 
 Among his forebearers, thus did he
 A hundred years ago.
 But if among our progeny
 There be a scattered few
 Who seek a trail behind their time
 Of things we said and knew
 For them we shall record these thoughts
 With paper and pen,
 The highlights in the lives of those
 Who are not but who have been.
