Ancestors

The goal of this section is to provide factual information about family members (when and where they lived, what they did, who their families were, etc.), but also to provide insight into just who they were on a human level – personality, values, whatever. This could be personal recollections, family legends, or printed information – anything. Photos Are invaluable.
