"The Story Tellers: We are the chosen ones.

In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors, to put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow, they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as it were by our genes.

Those who have gone before crying out to us: Tell our story! So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family? You would be proud of us! How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.

It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, they’re never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers.”
― Della Joann McGinnis Johnson

Research in genealogy also reminds us of the many unknown and unnamed who have gone before us: "Of others no memory remains, for when they perished, they perished, as if they had never lived, they and their children after them. (Ecclesiasticus or Sirach Chapter 44, verse 9). This poem speaks of them and of some I have been blessed to find:

Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh and blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder how you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you.

-Walter Butler Palmer

The Descendants of Justin Lambert site is dedicated to the memory of Homer R Lambert  and Lucienne (Laroche) Lambert. Homer's 100th birthday celebration by his descendants  on the 4th of July weekend in 2008 at the Lambert homestead in Highgate Center,  Vermont was the catalyst for setting up the site. Lucienne's notes and hand copied  genealogies of the Laroche and Gagne families were the inspiration to post the  geneologies, pictures, stories and anecdotes associated with the Lambert family and  friends and neighbors. In 1995 Genealogist Geoff Robinson compiled the Lambert  genealogy to Homer R. Lambert's generation for Raymond A Lambert, webmaster and  administrator of the site. Maureen J. Chicoine, a Raymond descendant, has graciously  provided information for the extensive Raymond genealogy. Sources will be listed as  the site develops. Many family members have contributed pictures, information and  corrections. This is a work in progress with many more pending additions  If anyone  finds errors or wishes to make contributions to the site, please contact me.  I will  exercise editorial 

"The apple, as the saying goes, does not fall far from the tree; I can only hope to  live up to the trees from which I have fallen." Michael Wilt

If it is true that we really die twice, once at our physical death and again when those who  remembered us in the past forget us, then let's never forget. So this is one reason for this site: To  remember names, days, successes and troubles of ancestors, relatives, and many of those connected to  them, so that they can fly on the wings of time and live an endless life before we see them all in  the next.

Raymond A Lambert

Prayer for the 100th Birthday Memorial of Homer R Lambert by His Descendants

Saturday, July 5, 2008

Today, we give thanks for Homer Raymond Lambert, and we honor his life and cherish  memories of him.

When we reminisce this weekend, we re-member or rejoin with each other.  Our  recollections may differ; however, sharing memories with loved ones brings us closer.  Through both tears and laughter, we bond as family and friends.  
 We thank God for this gathering to bring us closer to friends and family and for the  new memories we are creating. We are also grateful for the people who were once  present in our lives and for those family members who are unable to be with us this  weekend. Each one has touched our hearts in a special way and each one has left an  indelible memory. We are thankful for all in this family who are or have been a part  of our lives.

From Homer and Lucienne, we have learned to live, laugh, and love. We thank God for  the experience of knowing each and every one in the Lambert family and for this  opportunity to celebrate life with gratitude and honor.

"For God, whom I serve with my spirit by announcing the gospel of his Son, is my  witness that without ceasing I remember you always in my prayers." -- Romans 1:9
