I have been interested in Genealogy since 1985 when I went to go live with my Grandma and Grandpa Kinnick after high school. My children are grown now and so I am ready to start digging. It is wonderful the technology available for research compared to all the tons of paperwork, books, and pictures I inherited from grandma from years of her intense research via snail mail!!
These graves hold the dust of your history
for many years they have been gone
they lived & they died before you were born
these generations have all traveled on.
And when I have slipped the bonds of this earth
with this family is where I will be
& this ground is where my dust will rest
only rememberings will be left of me.
So when you come here to reminisce
& these old acquaintances to renew
may the memories never dim, let them be not forgot
'cause they begat the who who begat you.
