Lessons From the Family Tree

One of my favorite hobbies has been genealogy. From the moment I first saw the name Friendly Ann Hart in the family Bible, I knew I had to know more about this long ago person and the things that shaped her life.

And so began a lifelong study, to learn not only the names, but also the history and culture of my ancestors. It’s about studying the events and influences that shaped their lives, and that would one day lead to the shaping of mine.

And so, I’m starting a new series of posts. To share the lessons I’ve learned from the family tree. These are not necessarily personal stories of my ancestors but the lessons I’ve learned in my own studies of the forces that moved through their lives.

Come join me on a journey through time…
