Did you know that your grand-uncle Franklin rode with Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders? Did know that your late aunt Betty was a nurse in a MASH unit during the Korean War? Did you know your great-great-grandmother was a Suffragette? If you’ve said NO to these questions there’s only one reason and one reason for this to be the case. There’s been no one keeping track of your family’s history.
The truth is you’re not alone for there’s only a small minutia of families who have. I believe this is because most of us are under the impression there’s nothing special about our families. We’ve probably said that none of us have done anything important like becoming a member of a small town’s board.
But, there’s the rub. While none of us might feel we’ve done anything important, who’s to say that there won’t be in our family who will. And when that time comes, how will that future ancestor know who came before him and what they did in their lives; that individual would have a void in his life.
Ms. Fox in her book seeks to help us remedy this situation by giving her readers an easy to follow guide in how to go about creating a family history for our future generations. There are ways of going about trying to backfill information about our family tree, and the author gives information to doing this as well.
While this might seem like a demanding task it can easily be turned into a fun family activity to gather all the bits and pieces, including oral histories from various members of the family, regardless of where they might physically be.
For wanting to instill a sense of pride in our family for today and futures generations, I’m happy to have given Ms. Fox 5 STARS for her endeavor here.
