Genealogical Databases of a Different Type
I have started making a point of looking at genealogical databases of a different type, other than the ones I have usually gone to – Ancestry and FamilySearch. I have had some wonderful success. Come learn more...
I also want to share something I received today from George Geder (http://george-geder.blogspot.com). I have his permission and it is beautifully written.
We must tell our people that not only are we genealogists, we are family historians re-constructing and re-writing our collective history. Those old photographs, letters, and bibles are artifacts of our being. We are curators of our culture.
Our ancestors had EVERYTHING stripped from them; their families, countries, cultures, language, pride, and dignity.
When the opportunity to RE-BUILD came, they did so, one photograph, letter, bible and artifact at a time.
We must document every scrap of inference that says we were, are, and will be here. It is our evidence. And it matters.
Peace & Blessings,
"Guided by the Ancestors"
