Stories of Families Across Time

Learning the stories of of our families and of their lives, their triumphs and defeats, and their secrets, gives us new ways of finding the places where our stories intersect. Family is something that can be defined, as it is here, by genealogy, relationships formed by bloodlines and marriages, but the stories of our families go beyond those lines and help us understand how our lives and stories are connected to each other, to our communities and how we are shaped by the places where we live and the people whose livesĀ  we touch. These pages are like the first pages of a book, only beginning to hint at how the stories unfold through generations to today, and imagining how they will continue to unfold for our children and their children.
