Welcome to our family tree! It is a "work in progress" and your help is needed! Please let me know if you find any errors in dates, names, etc., or have a name to add that I missed! Some names need filled in, also with middle and maiden or married names. After 39 years of collecting information about our relatives from family reunions and others who have worked on our tree, I finally am finding time to put it all in one place. I LOVE PICTURES! They tell a story like no other! So, please email, text, or messenger me pictures you want me to include! Also, any pictures of tombstones, death certificates, birth certificates, etc are great pics to add... it proves the dates are correct to anyone visiting the site!
We are born, we die. We record all that information and where we are buried. But, to me, the true story of who our relatives are, is telling our stories! If you have a favorite memory that is dear to your heart, or can contribute a short biography about someone (or yourself!), these are the things that make us smile when we read through these names, and learn what kind of blood runs through our veins! Trust me, after putting over 700 names on our "tree", and dating them back as far as 1400, I started looking at my blood a little differently... it is very diluted!
Yet, it is STILL AMAZING how a grandmother and granddaughter can look like twins! Or how the Miller blue eyes or the Royer nose can pop up just about anywhere! I won't talk about "ears"...or "large heads" and "receding hairlines" ... but I'll gladly brag about all those brains that are still getting handed down! (That's why we need the big heads, right?)
We have some totally amazing relatives and you are one of them! Enjoy looking through the history... and I encourage you to leave something about yourself for that great-grandchild who will be looking at your picture in the future, and think... "I wonder what she/he was like..." because if there's one thing I've learned doing this... time goes by so quickly! Looking back, the years passed like minutes! It is humbling as I look at all these old photos and connect the lines; realizing that all those years in between the dates we are on earth is what makes us who we are. Nothing has really changed since the first 1400 year entry... we laugh, we love, we have babies, and our babies have babies... it's the cycle of life since the beginning of time... so please help me tell OUR story with your contributions! May our legacy continue! Smiles, Hope Royer Miller
