    A Must Read for those who honor their ancestors!

    A great follow-up or companion to the author's book, "In Search Of Our Ancestors" which is simply wonderful! You'll get teary when you have to finish it. In, "Honoring Your Ancestors" you'll read of the many inspiring, creative ways people have honored their ancestors. Just like the first book, it can be enjoyed just one story at a time, that is...if you can put it down!

    Inspiring Stories of Personal Creativity

    Honoring Our Ancestors is an inspiring collection of various ways people have honored their ancestors after seeking information about them. While some create quilts, paintings and unique records of interest mainly to their own descendants, others have used their ingenuity to contact other family members or create lasting memorials that benefit not only their own family but all generations such as music, scholarships, and restorations of family homesteads. Two or three of these short stories can be read as time allows. One may inspire you to create your own way of honoring those who came before you to the benefit of those who come after you.
