"Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation." Lois Wyse (20th century)
"Life is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others." S Pierce in memorial of "Woody" and Wilda Woodward.
I have been interested in my family heritage since I was a young child. I remember asking my grandmothers to "write down the names" Thankfully, they did and I had no idea just how many names there would be :-) I have been compiling and researching all those names for years. I am so thankful for this website. I now have a place to put all the pictures and newspaper clippings my grandmothers saved. I hope they can benefit other family members who may be searching their roots.
