Wisdom Wednesday - Quote of the Week

I apologize my posting has been sporadic of late. We have put the family history book to bed ( I will share more about that in future posts) and anxiously await its arrival.

I have just celebrated the 50th Anniversary of my parents wedding and as chief cook and bottle washer I had my hands full. Now it is full steam ahead to reunion plans.(Look to Friday's post for some reunion ideas).

However, I am happy to get back to posting on a regular basis. Geneabloggers have recently started a new Wednesday theme and I am happy to join along. Previously Wordless Wednesday was never my thing, as a writer it went against every grain of my being. However, Wisdom Wednesday I can certainly get behind.

In writing our family history book we often turned to quotes in the writing of our book. I personally find them to be thought provoking, and help to enhance the book. 

If you are writing your family history book , I encourage you to look to quotes to enhance your book. They are easily found on the Internet, just make sure you give proper citation to the author.

To start this first Wisdom Wednesday, I wish to share a quote that eventually lead us to the title of our family history book. Our family book is entitled  The Waters of My Ancestors, The Kowalsky-Vogel Story.

We have taken our inspirations from the following quote.

"I have drunk deep of the waters of my ancestors" Larry Neal

Larry Neal or Lawerence Neal (September 5, 1937 – January 1981) was a scholar of African-American theatre. He is well known for his contributions to the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
