So many people loose the history of their ancetors and what made them who they've become. Many don't know where their families originated from. Most have no clue about how their families were forced to migrate through rough conditions and treacherous terrain in hopes of survival. Much of the documentation and history of such valiant people has been lost. Photos have been lost or destroyed. Journals have been misplaced and some ancestral history is lost forever. It's up to us to preserve what we can, to leave it for the generations after us. How have you preserved your family history?

I never did get my hands on my father's pictures from the war, but I wrote down the stories he told me. I also asked my great great aunt about her childhood. And I had my great aunt write down about how her family travelled across to Kansas in a covered wagon in 1911.
