About The Madgwick Family
Please sign in to see more.
I started researching my family tree after the death of my last Grandmother Flora Bessie Selina Madgwick (Moore) in November 2001.. I was curious to find out who Flora's parents were....From  then on my tree has grown..I have been in contact with a few distant relatives I have found during  my research...

Please feel free to contact me for access to my tree...

We are the chosen. My feeling is that 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 those who went before know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold  gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the  storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as if it were in 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 my 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 the facts. It goes to who I am, and why 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 they fought to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep and immense  understanding that they were doing it for us, 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 them and they are  us. I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation, to answer  the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family  genealogy, and that is what call those, young and old, to step up and put flesh on the bones
