Excerpt from Butleriana, Genealogica Et Biographica: Or Genealogical Notes Concerning Mary Butler and Her Descendants, as Well as the Bates, Harris, Sigourney and Other Families, With Which They Have Intermarried

'Honor thy Father and thy Mother.'

Whoever writes his father's name on his father's tombstone is an incipient genealogist. He shows the germ of a feeling which, if it could, would write indelibly the names of all his progenitors, even back to his first father. He is therefore guilty of inconsistency, if he hems in his genealogical interest by the record in his ancestral Bible or by family tradition. Moreover, he who forgets the past has no claim to be remembered by the future.

Our public records are not without genealogical value, and we should make the most of them. But it cannot be enough regretted that regarding lineage they are so far inferior to those of a neighbor we are prone to despise. In the Canadian Bureau of Archives the merest peasant finds the complete record of his family history, extending back to the ancestor who left his hamlet in the old France to seek a home in the wilds of the new France.
