My name is Gisela Arnfield and I started this site.

My site is dedicated to the memory of my father Francis "Frank" WARBURTON born on 12th Nov. 1925 and died 23 Feb. 1992.    Dad's favourite subject was history.   My father would have really liked to have seen what I have found out about our own personal family history as I know that he did not have any idea of  how far back it has taken us, "his" (my)  family.   Still miss him & know how much he would have liked to have seen my trees,  but it was too late when I started my research.  

Genealogy begins as an interest,

Becomes a hobby, Continues as anavocation,
Takes over as an obsession;

And in its last stages.....Is an incurable disease....

Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: "Tell our story". So, we do.

This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 20821 names in our family site.
The site was last updated on Jan 29 2015, and it currently has 76 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here.   Enjoy!

Genealogy:Genealogy
Posted by: Gisela Arnfield on Apr 12 2013 01:07

"We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: "Tell our story". So, we do.

In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us." How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.

It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't...
