Some of our grandchildren's favorites were simple stories like "Grandpa Dan
and the Cat That Came Back," about a cat that young Dan in Sweden kept trying
to give away, only to have it find its way home; and "The Reason We're Not
Billionaires," about great-great-grandpa Bingham, who was a sheep farmer who
was bothered by all the red rocks on his homestead, never realizing that they were
copper ore. The property is now the site of the largest open pit copper mine in
the world.

"

Just as your grandchildren will be the key and the
substance of your future legacy, you can, in turn,
provide the key and the substance of their link to the
past and their larger-than-self-identity. Think of yourself
as the storytelling connector of branches and roots.

"

Research is now suggesting that one of the very best things we can do for
our grandkids is to teach them about their ancestors and give them the identity-strengthening blessing of a real "Family Narrative." An Emory University study
concludes, "the more children know about their family's history, the stronger their
sense of control over their lives, the higher their self-esteem." You, as a grandparent, are perfectly positioned to create the kinds of family narratives that can make
your grandkids stronger and more resilient.
Then, we compiled the stories we had heard and the ones we were able to find
on ancestry websites, and we wrote up each of them as a children's story, in children's language. We tried to find and write at least one story about each of the
twenty-eight people in the roots (below-ground) part of the painting. These
twenty-eight noble souls are our kids' grandparents, great-grandparents, and
great-great-grandparents. Having their individual pictures visible on their individual roots on our family tree is what introduced these wondrous people to our
grandkids; and finding one interesting story from each of their lives is what helped
them to feel like they really knew each of them a bit.
