About This Blog
Uncovering my family's past has been a passion, some would say obsession, of mine for a very long time. As I started out collecting names and dates, I also began collecting the stories behind those names and dates, giving the ancestors of mine faces, personalities, strengths, weaknesses, struggles, victories... life. Despite my best attempts to capture all of the rather one dimensional information about my ancestors for posterity, I have found that the stories are missing. While the names and dates can be found in the companion website Speaking of Family..., this blog is my attempt to give voice to some of those in our family who have gone before us.
