Faith of my fathers and mothers.
A genealogical look at my godly (and sometimes godless) ancestors.
An evangelist’s son recently wrote a book about his parents and this childhood – of being raised in a Christian household. I haven’t read the book and don’t remember the evangelist’s name but just reading a review got me to thinking about the faith of my father and mother and grandparents and all the greats before them. I come from a long line of faithful Christian as well as some non-believers or variations thereof. I am also an amateur genealogist and have considered writing my family history down for years. However, after 25 or more years of research, I have several volumes of paperwork and it would take me another 25 or more years just to get it written into book form. I have done a photo album of my Mendoza line and a small report on my Buor and Conrad line as well as a rough sketch of my son’s Lazzaro grandfather’s line. So instead of starting with another “line” I decided to start with a common attribute – faith – to write my family’s story.
