Welcome to The Corthell Family

I'd like to take the time to welcome you to our little place on the web. We're currently reworking the site and trying to make it more interactive for any Corthell (or anyone looking for a resource to find more information about us!).

If You Could See Your Ancestors

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not?
Or don't you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees.
And some of them, you know,
Do not particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them perhaps
You shouldn't care to know.
But here's another question
Which requires a different view -
If you could meet your ancestors
Would they be proud of you?
