About Our Family Research

To be ignorant of what occurred
before you were born
is to remain always a child.
For what is the worth
of human life
unless it is woven into
the life of our ancestors
by the records
of history?

Cicero 106-43 B.C.

The past is never dead. It's not even past.

William Faulkner, Requiem for A Nun

For the living know that they shall die: but the
dead know not any thing, neither have they any
more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Ecclesiastes, 9:5

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go
walking around outside your body.

Elizabeth Stone, Children's Author

If I hold within myself the memory
of the journey of my ancestors,
if I know that I am evidence of the
success of that journey, then I can
believe that I too will be able to
move through the challenges I face
in my life.

Bernice Johnson Reagon: I Remember, I Believe

Portrait on a Wall

Sometime, when I have become a quiet portrait on the wall,
Will you, my fair descendant, stop to think of me at all?
Suppose your hands are shaped like mine
and you have my keen sense of fun.
Will there be one to tell you so...then...when my days are done?
If you love books and fires and songs, and silver moons in velvet skies,
Toss me a look of shared delight from those, my own dark eyes.
For there are kinships in a curl and namesakes in a spoken name;
The wine of life may yet be poured by faded hands within a frame.
