Hi, I’m Sarah! Wife, mom, family history nerd and the person behind The Kindred Press. Whether you’re already obsessed with family history, interested but overwhelmed or somewhere in between you’re in the right place. I hope you’ll follow along with me on Instagram @thekindredpress. I’m so glad you’re here and am excited to have you on this journey with me!
One of my favorite quotes that surmises why I believe family history is so important is by Hank Smith who said, “As we learn about our past, we gather strength for the future.”
Family history is SO much more than PAF files and pedigree charts. It’s food, stories, songs, photographs, places. It’s the history we are creating in our own lives right now. I know that as we take time to learn about our ancestors and connect to them, we are strengthened. As we share what we’ve learned and record our own stories we create a resource for strength for our future generations.
We become the link between the past and the future – we make ourselves and our families stronger. As we look at our own lives from this perspective, we are better able to recognize our own significance and realize just how much our own stories matter.
Here at The Kindred Press I am dedicated to showing you how beneficial family history work can be and making it feel accessible to you no matter your experience, skill level, or amount of time you have to dedicate. We all have the ability and responsibility to record, preserve and share their personal and family history and I’m here to show you how possible it is.
