About In Our Hearts


I tell you someone will remember us in another time…” Sappho.

Exploring the back roads with a pen in hand, and a camera carried at my side. Recording the history and family story of my ancestors in Alabama and beyond. Through this blog, I hope to connect to other family members, and to preserve the memory of our heritage.

“In Our Hearts” was created a to not only preserve family history but to also create a scrapbook for individual family members to share  their lives, and what is important to them.  This way family members can learn more about each other, and we can create a lasting memorial to be enjoyed now and by future generations. If you would like to contribute or share information, please leave a comment (your info will be kep confidential) so we can connect.
