Linking our present to the past. As I have searched for the roots of our families, I have discovered that we are the children of the past. What we are today truly comes from those who came before us. By seeking our pasts, I hope to build bridges to long deceased ancestors and also to find members of our family who have been missing along the way. The lives of our ancestors, the struggles won, hardships survived, the battles fought,have brought to us a freedom that I have only now begun to appreciate. I hope to pass this legacy on to my children and grandchildren, as it was handed down to me. Welcome to my family and I am very glad that you came.
