The photo on the front cover of the book is Fred Bartsch resting under a tree in the garden near his home. He was 90 years old when the photo was taken, but was still able to use a chopping hoe to weed his garden.
I hope this book will encourage others to write down and publish the family stories that were passed down from generation to generation. As the years pass and people eventually die of old age, those stories will get lost forever unless someone takes the time to save them.
It's a lot more interesting to know that Great Uncle Albert had a bad temper or that Great Aunt Ethel had a drinking problem than to just know when they were born or died. A short story that describes a funny incident or even an unpleasant incident that happened to them can help bring them to life for future generations.
What would you like your descendents to remember about you...??
