Sorrow, Love, Poverty

Poignant stories are written in the tombstones in every cemetery. 

A young mothers love and deeply caring memory is recorded. 

Someone is considered a saint when they do something good for someone else or make someone’s life happier.  Someone who does all of this subconsciously and without knowing it, is an Angel.  Families Are Forever.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
