They were victims. They were heroes. They were lost. And they were found. Some lived and became our ancestors. Some died. Some are remembered vividly. And some are known to no one alive today. They are the littlest members of our family. They are the children. And from the mundane to the amazing, they all have stories we ― like our families’ genealogists ― must tell.
