Read Me First

This website is not like many which contain some flashy graphics and lists of names, dates and places of birth and death of so many people long departed and nearly all forgotten.  It is much more than that.

These are stories that have a bit of color, reveal the living conditions of the early periods...and some of the yarns that have been passed down through the generations.  It helps to tell us who our ancestors really were...and how they lived.

Names and dates are important to us as individuals...we all like to know who our direct ancestors are.  But I think we also like to know how our ancestors lived, how they struggled, how they were like us and different from us.  This one is not so much about genealogy, but about family stories.
