Hello, I am Barbi Braude.

I have a passion for family. For keeping the roots, branches and leaves of our family trees connected.

After having done so many books documenting other family’s journeys I decided along with my cousin Irene to my maternal family’s book.

It took us almost a year from start to finish. I mean by finish that the book had been mailed to 10 continents and to well over 90 different addresses. The logistics alone kept me up at night. After all all this was happening during the Covid-19 pandemic.

I tell anyone who’ll listen that I have been fundamentally changed for having completed MY family’s book. That I am the one who has received the greatest gift … the opportunity to have connected with my amazing family all 188.

Our Family Tree

Previous generations are the soil and roots, and we are the fruits hanging from the tree. When looking back, we may see a bleak past, of simple bark, roots and soil, with no apparent connection to our day-to-day lives.

However, imagine the fruit were to say “this bark of a tree, with it’s ugly roots and dirty soil, is of no significance to me because of its age!” Never forget our existence radiates from our ancestors. The more ancient, the more power, light, vitamins and nutrients we, the fruit, can draw upon to succeed as contributing members of society.

Through this book, we contemplate and learn from our ancestry, connect with our roots and take comfort from the continuation of our family line. We are a continuation and extension of our ancestors’ actions and lives. We are standing on the shoulders of giants. Our people have a collective purpose to be a light unto the nations. Previous generations have achieved a lot, but they need us to take the final step in this mission.
