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.

|Kittie ||Memorial # 61877427|
If Mary Botts was the spouse of Thomas Crampton, Jr., shouldn't she be listed as Bary Botts Crampton instead of Mary Crampton Botts?

|Jax ||RE: Dolores Adams Hoover|
So sorry I made this complicated. It's a talent I have and it drives me batty. On one memorial you added to last names for Dolores Adams Hoover, in the other one you have adams as the maiden names, which I think is correct. Same with hazel adams beach. On one she has two last names, the other Adams is the maiden name. The ones with Adams as maiden names both have photos and I believe are correct. Hope that makes sense. It barely does to me

Hi Susan, Thank you for all the work you have done. This morning I added my first memorial to the site. I would like you to transfer the Isaac King Memorial #63270127 to me. This is my first request to transfer a memorial. Please advise me how it is done. Thank you for considering my request. Charlotte Price Wirfs.
Thank you so much. I appreciate all the work you have done.
