Update Your Branch of the Gilbert Family Tree
Due to privacy concerns (such as identity theft) information about living persons will not be included in the book without prior written consent. If you want your name and information included (and that of the rest of your family) please SIGN & MAIL (by post, not e-mail) the permission form by 31 Jan 2010.
For those turning 18 on or before 31 Jan 2010, please wait until your 18th birthday before signing & mailing your consent. For those under 18 permission may be granted by a parent or legal guardian.
Once you have the form filled out for your family, send me a message and I'll provide a mailing address.
Permission Forms (Just print it out, fill it out and send it in):
Most family genealogies are lists of names and dates with no real indication of who each person was. How do you want to be remembered by future generations reading this book?
Do you want to be the stick figure to the left where only your name is known? Or do you want to be the lively person to the right who just jumps off the page?
Help this book be more than just a listing of names, dates and places. Include a blurb about yourself, your parents, grandparents, children, siblings - WHO are you? WHAT do you like to do (job, hobbies)? WHAT are you proud that you’ve accomplished?
Please Take A Moment and Update Your Branch of the Gilbert Family Tree
Even if you just update the information about yourself, your spouse and your children it would be an incredible help.
Update information on your family
If you would like to submit family information for the book but are unsure of what we already have on your family - don't worry about duplicating information, that's my job :) Just send what you want included and I'll take care of the rest. (If there have been any changes to your family since the 1970's it's safe to assume that this information has not yet been submitted).
Corrections to Harriet Walker's Isaac Gilbert book
Family Stories need not be long. A few words, or a few lines will go far in preserving the personality of whomever it is written about. Help make this book more than a listing of names, dates and places! By sharing family stories you are ensuring that future generations will know more about you than your name.
