Exploring my extended family tree is a work in progress. I offer information to all who are lovingly curious; to those who want to know more of the interesting story of our imperfect lives. You are welcome to copy and post any of my photographs or written information onto your family trees or websites. It is my intention to share the treasures I've uncovered in grateful recognition to those who have helped me, as well. If you find a close relative amongst the memorials I have established or those that I manage, please inquire about a transfer if you wish to take on that honor.Dear Ancestor"Your tombstone stands among the restNeglected and aloneThe name and date are chiseled outOn polished marble stoneIt reaches out to all who careIt is too late to mournYou did not know that I existYou died and I was bornYet each of us are cells of youIn flesh and blood and boneOur blood contracts and beats a pulseEntirely not our ownDear Ancestor, the place you filledOne hundred years agoSpreads out among the ones you leftWho would have loved you soI wonder how you lived and lovedI wonder if you knewThat someday I would find this spotAnd come to visit you."-Walter Butler Palmer
