Beatitudes of a Family Genealogist

Blessed are the great-grandmothers, who hoarded newspaper clippings and old letters, For they tell the story of their time.

Blessed are all grandfathers who filed every legal document, For this provides proof.

Blessed are grandmothers who preserved family Bibles and diaries, For this is our heritage.

Blessed are fathers who elect officials that answer letters of inquiry, For--some--they are the only link to the past.

Blessed are mothers who relate family traditions and legends to the family, For one of her children will surely remember.

Blessed are the relatives who fill in family sheets with extra data, For them we owe the family history.

Blessed is any family whose members strive for the preservation of records, For theirs is a labour of love.

Blessed are the children who will never say, "Grandma, you have told that old story twice today."

I have a hope beyond the grave that someone on earth might remember me.

Thank you!
I am Sherrill Pulley Mulkearns, granddaughter of Inez Bowman Talley, and great-granddaughter of Mary Leona Sherrill Bowman. I very much enjoyed the pictures of my great aunts and uncles, some of which I have never seen. I also had not seen the photo of Elbert Bowman and his wife Mary standing beside the car. Thank you so much for posting these! I am wondering about your connection in the family.

Thank you for asking permission. I took those photos over a year ago and now realize a few could be better. I'm going to retake them when I can. I'll let you know. Colletta
