To remember is to rescue the sacred from the vacuum of oblivion.

The above quote can be accredited to Terryl Lynn Givens, professor of literature and religion at the University of Richmond.

I saw this recently on a video online. Yes, a genealogy website one at that.

The video was on journaling, it was really good actually. Watch it here

Steve Reed gives us a compelling story to write often. Even if it is boring or monotonous. A reminder to write something.

Amateur genealogist, family historian and lover of old photos. If I have posted something I shouldn't have, please let me know. If it's my spelling then just be nice about it. I would like to acknowledge all the wonderful people that I know and have met along the way. I have really loved getting to know family by knowing family. May you receive my eternal thanks if you visit often and write nice things on my posts. My stats here really could use a boost... This blog contains lots of information about dead people and a fair majority my relatives. If we are related to someone I have posted about please send me a message. I would love to hear from you.
