Family includes both ancestors and descendants. The challenge in our modern world is to keep privacy private and at the same time share information when and where it is appropriate.

Family and Local History can enrich our lives. Genealogical research and writing personal and family history have become popular around the world and there is much more information posted now on the internet than ever before. Books, however, continue to play an important role as data, documents and photographs are collected and presented with a continuity that remains impossible to access any other way.
