I'm a performing artist on the piano. I got interested in genealogy when my mother and I could not mark the family portrait's with the right names. WELL, it lead to two family history books and many chapters on other relatives in the family tree. I'm hooked! Big time! I'm half Swedish and half Irish! One of my books is also printed in Svenska and both are at the Library of Congress, besides Sale Lake City. It is amazing the stories I uncovered. I have an ancestor (grandfather) who was a famous sculptor in northern Sweden, which I have a carved lion of his from 1750. The best is that I found my Great Great Great Grandfathers name (David Allard) carved in the rocks on the Oregon Trail. What a thrill! I even had a ancestor killed by INDIANS!
By recording their lives in print, it gives me a inter-peace; also makes me feel connected to them, personnel. Not just a name but a REAL story behind that name.
....and it's about keeping their memory alive for all future generations to come.
