"Facts Get Recorded … Stories Get Remembered"

Ancestral Stories

It is those stories of our ancestor’s lives that we need to carefully preserve. Our ancestor’s also experienced their set of life challenges, resourcefulness, successes, along with their sad and lighter moments in their lives. It is those stories that we must preserve. Their life experiences can also strengthen us as we go through our own challenges in life.

Ancestral stories come down to us in many different ways, through photographs, old family movies, old family letters, their oral histories recorded on tapes, journals, and such.

Our Stories
