If you’ve ever had the experience of learning about an ancestor whose story has been missing from your family tree for a long time, you understand the need to preserve that story and make sure it never disappears again.
This was Cathryn Darling’s experience, after she learned that her father, who she’d been told had abandoned her as a child, had really been killed in a tragic fishing accident (watch her video here.)
“After I found out that my father had died as a fisherman and his body was missing, I couldn’t let that settle. It wasn’t going to be the end of the story,” she said. “He was going to live on forever.”
