 D. OTHER INFORMATION OF INTEREST FROM A GENEALOGICAL STANDPOINT: Contemporary records are a debt due from every generation to the future. The preservation of general biographical and genealogical material has been too much neglected, placing an additional burden upon those of the present generation, whose duty it is to hand down to posterity a faithful picture of contemporary life and achievement and such ancestral data as may have been rescued from oblivion through family tradition or the forethought of private individuals as to occupations, schooling, important lifetime happenings, honors, military service, etc.
