"If I want my children and grandchildren to know those who still live in my memory, then I must build the bridge between them. I alone am the link to the generations that stand on either side of me. It is my responsibility to knit their hearts together through love and respect, even though they may never have known each other personally. My grandchildren will have no knowledge of their family’s history if I do nothing to preserve it for them. That which I do not in some way record will be lost at my death, and that which I do not pass on to my posterity, they will never have." ~ Elder Dennis B. Neuenschwander, Ensign, May 1999, pages 83-84~

Starting the Bridge

After reading an article in my latest Family Tree Magazine I decided to start a genealogy blog.  In the past twenty years I have collected genealogies, family histories, stories, photos and more.  In this blog I will share many of these as well as insights, tips and any thing else I think may be of interest to my followers.  I hope you will join me on my adventure as I become a bridge builder, connecting my ancestors to my descendants and hopefully encouraging others to build their own bridges.
