Tippecanoe County, Indiana

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from.  Without this enriching knowledge there is a hollow yearning.  No matter what our attainments in life there is still a vacuum.  An emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness."  Alex Haley
