Begotten and never forgotten

I can sense them calling out to me
From the gloaming of my past

"Please do not let us be forgot.
Record our stories that we may last."

From an original poem posted at .: BeNotForgot :. which was composed for Randy Seaver's Genea-Musings: Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Poetry and Genealogy.

Graves of our fathers . . .

"Who are these graves we know not,
Only know they are our fathers."

From a post by . . . :: footnoteMaven :: . . . about an 1887 Guide to Genealogists on How To Write The History of a Family.
