Dear Friends,

What is there about genealogy that fascinates some of us and sends others "running for cover"? When the subject comes up at a dinner party, the genealogists would rather talk than eat, the long-suffering friends devote their full attention to the food before them. I suspect everybody has a desire to know more about those who made us what we are; our physical appearance and habits, our customs and attitudes. It is just that some of us have learned the art of research and have the patience to read, write letters and ponder the puzzle. Some of us are able to retain endless numbers, names, dates and places ...while others seek pastimes that are less demanding.

It would be devastating if everyone had the same desire to study genealogy. There wouldnít be room in the libraries or the courthouses for all of us. Besides it is kind of nice to realize that we are part of a minority that will unravel the hopelessly mixed up records of the past two or three hundred years. I am pleased to be part of this group and I know you are also; otherwise there would be no HARRISON HERITAGE.

As we start a new year, letís declare our intent to continue the research. Letís help bring our families to life and letís be sure that we document our research. Our family and friends will be proud that we have recorded our findings for posterity.

See you in March 1986

Until then, have a very

Newark, N.J. in May 1666, mentioned in his will his father, Richard, and his Uncle Thomas.
