Having your grandparents or an aged relative still alive and healthy enough to explain the who's who of your family tree is an invaluable gift.
Using old photos, repeated and beloved story telling, health history verification and vivid knowledge of important life changing events, this little girl and her siblings will have an accurate family history to share with their children and all future descendants.
Most families understand that life is a constant race against time. We don't really know how long our family historian will remember who those faces belong to in the old photographs. We don't know how long any of us will be around to enjoy the efforts made to identifying those relatives who have the 'family stories.' We only know how sad we will be when our beloved elders pass on and our family history dies with them.
