In her own words, Dorris Keeven-Franke has a passion for sharing history! “I loves love telling the difficult stories. I enjoy helping people connect with their heritage, their culture, and the history of the places we live. Everyone has a story, and every place has a story. It’s’ when those stories come to life, that we give a voice to the people and the times and the places that they lived. Whether its’ found in a cemetery, a courthouse, or a cabin in the woods, there is a story of the people that were there. In order to preserve these stories we must share them, they will not be forgotten. Whether the story is a German emigrant who becomes an abolitionist, or a slave who is an American hero, these are the stories that bring meaning to the communities we live in, and help us understand our past. Helping our young people to know their ancestors and the stories of their lives, creates a better tomorrow for everyone.” Click here to learn more.
