THE STORY TELLERS... (Unknown Author)|
We are the chosen. My feelings are that in each family there is one who seems called
to find the ancestors; to put flesh on their bones and make them live again; to tell
the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing
genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who
have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as
it were, by our genes.
Those who have gone before cry out to us... Tell our story. So we do. In finding
them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now? I have lost
count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family? You
would be proud of us. How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow
there was love there for me? I cannot say.
I go beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I
do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference
and saying I can't let this happen.
The bones here are bones of my bones and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing
something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish.
How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and
losses, their never giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their
It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a
deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us that we might be born
who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing
each fact of their existence because we are them and they are us. So, as a scribe
called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next
generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family story
That is why I do my family genealogy and that is what calls those young and old to
step up and put flesh on their bones.

Thanks again for transferring my great-great grandmother Elizabeth's memorial to me so quickly. I will start linking as many family members together as I can.
|Craig Berlin||William and Lydia Cribbs|
William and Lydia were my great-grandparents. My Grandma was Marie Cribbs(Berlin). I spent many fun times over at my Aunt Goldie's house (great aunt) just west across the street from the Lutheran Church. She married my Granddad and moved to Columbus Ohio in the mid 1920's, where they both resided until their death. Goldie lived to be 103.

|Gary Kribbs||Jacob & Delilah Kribbs|
My name is Gary Kribbs. Jacob & Delilah were my Great Great grand parents. I have the Kribbs family Bible. They actually had more children. Short version; Their son Charlies went to North Dakota and had my Grand father Millard who moved to Cleveland were I was born to Richard & Margaret. My family and I are currently in the Philadelphia area.
Also Jacob's father was Christian and I think he is interned in the area somewhere. Happen to know anything?
|Rebecca Dunlap||Rebecca Robinson|
Thanks so much for bringing that to my attention. I don't know what I was thinking! Thanks again.
|John Pfeister||RE: Cousins|
I agree. We are fourth-cousins, twice removed. Your message helped me find the missing link.
|RAP||Crothers vs Cruthers|
Hello, I was in Garfield Township Cemetery (Bay County, MI) today and I added a couple photos. I noticed a slight different spelling for Lizzie and Albert Cruthers (instead of Crothers). Also the year of birth reads 1860 on the stone for Albert. Let me know if you would like me to remove the photo or add a comment.

You are welcome for Thomas and Violet Getty.
I also gave you the other Getty's.
I am glad it helped you in your family tree reseach.
Getty and Gettys are in my family also from Indiana County, Pa. Think it goes back to James J. Getty born 1799 in Franklin County, Pa
Good luck with your research
