Life connections website was created by Patti. In each family there is one whom seems
called to find 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.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all
who have gone before. 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 cry out to us,
"Tell our story" So, we do.
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many times have i stood before a grave and
cried? I 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.
It goes beyond documenting facts. It goes to who i am and why i do the things that i
do.It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost to weeds and indifference and saying
"I can't let this happen" The bones here are bones of my bones 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.
Genealogy work remains in progress.
