In most families there is always the story-teller, the keeper of the light, who passes on to each generation the family biography. There are the scrapbook keepers, the family photographer, the pack rats and we have many of those in the Lamb family. As archival technology has improved and communications expanded over the internet, we, like most families, are turning out the photos, letters, the memories, the souvenirs of lives well-lived and recording them for posterity. In many families, oral traditions are strong and we are much the same. However, we are also fortunate that our story-tellers also were writers or used talented writers to document the family history.
