GWT Template 207

In Search of Family

Welcome to Template 207!

main imageWe are so happy you dropped in! We hope we can help you in your ancestor quest. If you have information to add, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're always looking for ways to increase our family tree.

All sources are documented to the best of our ability. We do not place information on our web that is a maybe it's true piece of information. If it's not documented, then we search for documentation of the facts. We use many sources of documentation, including, but not limited to census records, military records, family Bibles, cemetery records, wills and more. When we find the source information, a picture is taken of the source and added to this web. This way everyone can see what weve added and what exactly the source says.

We hope you like the new look of our web. It is from Genealogy Web Templates: . There is a nice selection of templates on the site. We worked with Darrin to create a perfectly fitted template that compliments his program. All of his functionality works perfectly and is surrounded by our styling code. Each template has its own template folder and is uploaded to the web.

Once uploaded, TNG recognizes the folder. The selection will automatically appear in the templates setting. You must have the latest version of TNG, as the coding for all of the Genealogy Web Templates has only been added to the latest version. Go to TNG for information on the latest version. Enjoy your new look! We have an html version of this template should you wish to have a seamless interface with your html site. Check out the MORE button below!

The Chosen

family image We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us. How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who I am, and why I do the things I do.

The Bones of My Bone

The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a nation.

It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are they and they are the sum of who we are.

So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take my place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and restore the memory or greet those who we had never known before.
