We Are Chosen!
               My feelings are that in each family there seems to be,               One who is called to find the ancestors.
               To put flesh to bone and make them live again.               To tell the family story and to feel that some how 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 on 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 and cried? I have lost count.               How many times have I told my Ancestors,
               You have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us.

How many time have I walked up to a grave,  
               And felt there was love there for me? I cannot say.               It goes beyond just documenting facts,
               It goes to who I am and why I do the things I do.

It goes to seeing a cemetary about to be lost to weeds and indifference,               And saying, I can't let this happen.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 in, or giving up.
               Their resolution to go on and build a life for their family.               It goes to deep pride that they fought to make us a Nation.               It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing 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 existance,               Because we are them, and they are us.
               So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family.               It is up to the one called in the next generation to answer the call,               And to take up their place in the long line of family storytellers.                That, is why I do genealogy and that is what call those,               Young and old,to step up and put flesh to bone.

"If you find a hole in the ground anywhere in the World, you will find a  Cornishman at the bottom of it".

So goes the old Cornish saying;
 For several hundred years, tens of thousands of Cornish men and women have  left their beloved County and travelled to the far corners of the World in search of  a new life. Most of this migration was as a result of the closing of the  Cornish Tin and Copper mines. The most popular destinations were the Americas,  Australia and South Africa, where new mineral wealth was being found.

Not only did the Cornish take their own expertise at hard rock mining and  making the machinery to service the mines, but they also exported their unique  culture and customs. There are many areas of the World which are still looked  upon fondly as Little Cornwall, with traditions and place names which remind  their inhabitants of their native and beloved Cornwall.

'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' A warning to anyone who wishes to exchange information with me. If  you send me information, it will be shared with other genealogists, through this  webpage and only living person's birth details will be hidden. If you do not feel  comfortable with this attitude or want to hide family secrets, do not share them with  me! I don't want to know, frankly. Keep your secrets to yourself, please. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Genealogy is for sharing, without sharing it has no purpose! Preserving the past is best done by sharing the past, not leaving it in the hands of a few!
