Welcome

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.

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...
