Vital! Magazine; Vital Information for a Vital Life!
Carol Kenny's article, "Sharing Insight from Your Ancestry with Future Generations," begins with the following quote from songwriter, Dar Williams: "I knew my family had more truth to tell and so I traveled down a whispering well to know myself through them." The same quote is used in her novel, Whispers from St. Mary's Well, to introduce the fictional narrator, who is researching her genealogy when she slips into a hypnotic trance and witnesses the traumatic childhood of her great-grandmother, who was born in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1851.
