         Ancestors of Sandra (Whalen) Bauer


My entry into the world of genealogy started while I was still a child but only really began in earnest after the death of my parents. I began to realize that I really did not know much about the ancestors of my maiden name so thus I began my search to learn about the Whalen family and the rest of my ancestors.

  • Dear Ancestor

    Your tombstone stands among the rest;
    Neglected and alone.
    The name and date are chiseled out
    On polished, marbled 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, in blood, in 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 if you lived and loved,
    I wonder if you knew
    That someday I would find this spot,
    And come to visit you.
