We are the chosen. My feeling are 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 they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of  facts but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before us. We are the story tellers of  the 
 tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone  before us 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 am now entering my 84th year and have  lost count.  
 How many times have I told the 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.
 That goes beyond just documenting facts.  It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do ?    It goes to seeing a cemetery about the 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 and they are us.  So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of  my 
 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 calls  those 
 young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.
