The Family Tree is where many people come together in different branches of the tree. From years of combining branches and twigs we come up with a forest of people. Sometimes we have to look further when we run into the woods and see all these branches reaching up toward the sky. So I hope you like the view from where you stand, you are standing at the edge of the woods come on in and dig around in the roots to see if any one matches up with the that branch you have came to the end of on your tree. I look forward to hearing from all that visit. I hope I can help you find some roots to your trees. Happy Hunting! Darlene (firstname.lastname@example.org) "TEACHING HISTORY THRU LIVING IT"
Creed of the Living Historian
“We are people to whom the past is forever speaking. We listen to it because we cannot help ourselves, for the past speaks to us with many voices. Far out of that dark nowhere, which is the time before we were born, men who were flesh of our flesh and bone of our bone, went through fire and storm to break a path to the future. We are part of the future they died for. They are part of the past that brought the future. What they did the lives they lived, the sacrifices they made, the stories they told and the songs they sung and finally, the deaths they died make up a part of our own experience. We cannot cut ourselves off from it. It is as real to us as something that happened last week.”
Prayer for Genealogist
“Lord, help me dig into the past,
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads,
On which my fathers trod,
And led them through so many lands,
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book,
Or dusty manuscript,
That’s safely hidden now away,
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let bridge the gap that haunts
My soul, when I can’t find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.”
