Family history is a dynamic series of events of people and places. During the brief one year that this book was in preparation, relatives have been born and some died. The more branches and leaves there are on the family tree, the bigger the tree but the importance of each individual subdivision seems to diminish in comparison to the whole. This book is for the future generations to be able to trace their collective pasts. ... Some descendant in the future might again pick up this book and add to it as much family information as possible about events from the date of publication to the date of renewed interest. This task may be up to you. (Family Book § 1)
