Worthington Clark Family Histories
Every family is unique. Each life is a thread woven into the evolving fabric of kinship. Individual journeys are part of the proliferation of families, cascading down the generations, through all the joys and trials that manifest through the passage of time.
Our passion is to discover the stories lying dormant in everyone’s family and present them in a beautiful way because family history is so much more than names and dates.
We research and discover the times and people, drawing out a dynamic narrative that everyone, young or old, wants to know about.
We bring to life the journeys of your ancestors using memoirs, interviews, books, letters, newspapers, magazine articles and other sources.
We believe the unearthing of a family history is an important undertaking. It connects people to their past, uniting and nourishing families and bringing with it a sense of identity and belonging. A family’s history enriches and entwines with other layers of history: local, national and world history of which we are all a part.
