Dedication - Introduction & Introduction Appendix

This McBride family Tree Heritage
Page and its contents are dedicated
by the author to all of those who
helped make it possible, to the
Blessed Memory of his Mother
Margaret B. (Peg) McBride; his
Uncle Wilbert C. (Joe) Knox; his
Grandparents, Ralph A. & Margaret
E. Book McBride, Leo S. - Nora
Brown Bumpus and his Ancestor's -
who are all in the loving arms of
our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven.
It is also dedicated in Honor of
his Father J. Harold McBride and
all those who faithfully reunite to
celebrate the love within the Family.
The following Family Genealogy is not just a list of
names, dates, places and locations, but rather a view of
many Famalies, brought forth from many walks of life.
It will speak of birth, the joining of Love and the final
resting of the people - who not only left behind their
sense of caring, but rather the understanding of Love,
within the family. Their living and ever-lasting prayers
were that their Love would be passed onto their children's
- children's - children and so it was, as God had intended
it. May he guide us and keep us, while following in our
Ancestor's footsteps. We can believe that our Ancestor's
teachings are true, because God's Love is unconditional,
everlasting and truly forever.                                         Amen
Introduction Appendix
I have found over the years that more and more people are
becoming interested in finding out about their family history,
or at least their family tree line.  We find our way back into
the past and discover not only our Ancestor's names and their
famalies, but occasionally obtain the first sight or knowledge
of our Family History, while searching for our Family Roots.
We sometimes find ourselves lost in a confusing network
of passages from history books, old church records, off the
headstones of our Ancestor's and of course Grandma's attic.
All of the Family Tree information I eventually collected
had allready been gathered and recorded by someone before
I began my research.  The time spent on a project such as this
can be very gratifying while bringing together the information
for my own family's knowledge, understanding and enjoyment,
in hopes that it will be passed onto our future generations.
While putting together this Family Tree History, I am very
indebted to many people for helpful suggestions and the
family data contained in this chronological record of our own
Family Tree Decendancy. I very truly want to thank each and
every person who helped, by taking the time to supply the
information I requested, with a very deep sense of gratitude.
