Skip all the clutter and get to the list.
Ever since I can remember my Grandmother Edna Repard kept a record of all the baby's born and all the deaths in the family. She spent hours putting together an extensive family history. Her passion for this was very contagious and
of course I've decided to follow close behind.
So for all the people who are interested in the very least in this sort of
thing here is my contribution. Most of this labor of love was done by
those that came before me. I've added some and hope there will be more
added to whomever in the next generation catches my Grandmother's passion.
So if you're here to find something or add something
I bid you a hearty welcome.
I found this poem in one of my Grandmother's books and thought you might appreciate it. I'm afraid I don't know who to give the credit to.
When speaking of our ancestors
My mother's eyes would shine
And proudly she would tell us all
" You're of the Tudor line "
You have a noble ancestry
But all are dead and gone
Tis you who have to prove your worth
Not those who've journeyed on
And back along the Tudor line
I'm sorry tonight to state
There may be some you can't approve
And some you'd really hate
The way to prove your ancestry
To what you are yourself
Not by the charted Family Tree
In books upon the shelf
So try and be an ancestor
Within the time allowed
Of whom your children's children
In the future can be proud
As you are about to find out (if you follow this link) I have a passion for photos, old photos, preferably those of family members, my family members. I hope that other members of my family (the ones that are still with us) come across these photos and find them at least half as interesting as I do. Why should I be the only one who knows my cousin looks remarkably like my Great Grandfather And just what ship my GGGGGGGreat Grandparents came to America on.
