I recently came upon a picture of my grandfather's grandfather, George Elmore Bergen. I have not found very much information on the man, and since my grandfather's passing last year I was not able to ask much about him. What I have, however, is a wonderful photograph, where I can see some family characteristics in his face, mostly his eyes and his remarkable comb-over. The older I get, the more interested I become with my family genealogy. I know there must be many stories about these people, but most are forgotten. My task now is to begin to catalogue these stories, and make them available for future generations.
