Mother's side of the Family Tree

Updated December 11, 2010

About Our Family Research


The birth of a family where does it start
Your parents, their parents all play a part

Virtues instilled deep within us all form
Long before an innocent child is born

Family history does have its role
Hardships and struggles take their toll

With each new child a new family is born
That is when the new life truly takes form

Each family as different as the members within
Philosophy, psychology and even emotions begin

Evolving and ever changing adapting as needed
Responding together to the way they are treated

Values and virtues learned were passed down
Communication and manners from those around

Reactions displayed dealing with joy and strife
All are absorbed in this, newly formed life

Growing wild the roots of the family tree
Suddenly hundreds more related you see

Steps and halves, cousins’ uncles and aunts
And a whole other pair of grandparents

The family continues to expand and grow
Marriages and babies were expected you know

But with death, divorce, and merges in the branches
The family tree grows larger, and what of the chances

Someday all you will see, will be your FAMILY

Poem by Vern Eaker
