Niagara Gazette — Maybe Joni Mitchell should sing her “Circle” song at the President’s State of the Union Address, or perhaps Maya Angelou would be willing to recite from her iconic “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”, or how about a few words from James Baldwin’s 1963 “The Fire Next Time” or his 1976 “The Devil Finds Work.”
Where oh where forth art the artists?
A few of them will gather this evening at 7 p.m., at the Lewiston Public Library. These particular artists are writers in the form of genealogist and historians asking the simple question: Qui êtes vous? or Who are you?
Michelle Kratts invites you to join historian Bill Siener and genealogist Peter Ames for the “American premier of the popular French-Canadian genealogy television program, Qui êtes vous?”
Like its American counterpart, “Who Do You Think You Are?” chronicles various family history mysteries relating to national celebrities.
Mrs. Kratts says, “Peter Ames and William Siener, are both deeply involved in researching the history of the area. Ames, a family history researcher, is well-known throughout the Niagara area for his work at historic Oakwood Cemetery, for organizing the preservation of local church records and for assisting people in their personal quest for genealogical answers.”
The better we know ourselves, the more likely we will know each other. Together, we might just possibly find our way back to the garden.
