The Book of Life

Since I've been working on my old file trying to capture all the "lost" information and comparing and restoring it to my new file, I've had a chance to do a lot of thinking.

Today I wish to share with you an experience I had probably around 1992. I had been given some manuscripts William Kenneth Harris had written on the genealogies of the Harris family. He was now older and could no longer do genealogy. He was very pleased that I would take over the task and promised to some day have the materials printed up for people, or at least make them available. Isn't this the hope of any genealogist?Collapse )
