(WJS - husband & CYS - wife)
We grew up in the Northwest and met in SoCal. We currently live in Phoenix, AZ. We work together on our family's lineage and heritage to include both confirmed and oral story collections.
We are both looking to maintain our direct family memorials with confirmed, DNA, records, family oral history, and pictures.
We include, respect, and work to document family oral history due to different immigrant and country heritages and several confirmed adoptions. DNA may find parentage, but adoptions support the person's growth and guidance. These stories breath life into culture and adoptee histories that may not otherwise be known. We believe oral history passed down is a critical part of our family's heritage. Oral history is vital history to be captured and respected as nurture through the generations walks hand in hand with nature. As we connect our family lines we also look to connect our adoptees family's with notes to support the relationships.
