Our ancestors and their collateral relatives lived, loved, laughed, and died. They deserve more than a name and birth date, and a date of death as if they are boxes on someone's check list. I enjoy bringing them to life when ever I can. Records are important, but giving our ancestors humanity is even more important. Census pages may tell not only where and when people lived but also how they lived. I try to take a middle ground between those who insist on absolute proof about everything, and those who follow mythical paths into the mists of antiquity. Thank you to all of you who take the time to post and remember those who have passed before us.
