We are dedicated to promoting among ourselves, and with others:
- Knowledge about the remarkable people of past and present who are part of the family
- Preservation of family history so we may share it with our children
- Development of historical materials especially oral histories to be shared now and in the future among ourselves and with family friends
- Helping as well as learning from the senior members of our family
- Support for the younger generation as they lead us into the 21st century
We begin with a family by the name of Marple because we think it exemplifies this family's successful effort over nearly two centuries to preserve something about themselves. Their individual achievements, while perhaps seeming at the time very modest, becomes today an example and encouragement to other families as well as their own to continue the work.
[The home of William Warren Marple in Wollaston, Massachusetts, in 1903.]
We hope this website will encourage all families to gather and preserve their own written and oral history.
