Wise Words

  • He who has no fools, knaves, or beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.
    English Proverb

  • Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
    Mark Twain

  • There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings.
    Hodding S. Carter

  • Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards.
    Unknown

  • We've uncovered some embarrassing ancestors in the not-too-distant past. Some horse thieves, and some people killed on Saturday nights. One of my relatives, unfortunately, was even in the newspaper business.
    Jimmy Carter
    Former U.S. President

  • We are the children of many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn ... betrays its ancestor.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
    Alex Haley, Roots

Can You Help Identify This Man?

Recently we became aware of the existence of a wonderful shadow box that is in the possession of the National Military Heritage Museum in St. Joseph. It was found in a storage locker in the Kansas City area. Can you help identify him? He obviously served his country well and his family deserves to have his medals returned to their care.

Photographs

What family history researcher doesn't love to come across a great old picture? And we turn them over, our hearts skipping a beat, hoping . . . just hoping . . . that somebody took the time to write a name on the back. And when we find one, how wonderfully grateful we are to whatever unknown hand that took the time to record the information. A date too? Oh my, we are blessed!

Below are some pictures that we've run across in the Library. Some are labeled and some are not. We've also included those that have been shared with us from other members. If you would like to share your great old pictures, or if you can identify some of the "unknowns", please let us know! We'd love to hear from you.
