From Familygenes Wiki
A DAY unrecorded is a day only half lived.
A LIFE recorded is doubly lived.
A FAMILY chronicled becomes part of its nation's written history, fossilizing its footprints, yet ensuring that it will live again and again as each new generation learns of its past and is inspired to add its own story to the family saga.
- quote from author of original book: Gertrude Webber Lawrie - 1988
