So much of our heritage and history is lost to time and distance that I believe it is necessary once in a while to stop and take a “freeze frame” in a wonderful and time-tested frame of reference called a “book”, especially a book connected and created especially for you, with the places and people you may have grown up with or want to learn more about, for these people are the reason we are here.

Some of Viola Foulks' favorite memories, as shared with her daughter, Kathy, in 2006. It was especially significant that she shared those memories as she was in the early stages of Alzheimer's. "I was reluctant at first to work on this memory book. I didn’t believe I could do it, or if I wanted to. It has done more good for me than you could imagine. I began having a good time, remembering my childhood, growing up, and meeting - and marrying - my husband. Those memories were not as deeply buried as I thought. ”Thank you for the opportunity to give to my children some parts of me and their dad that they should have had long before now. – Viola, Gillette, WY" Show Less

In March of 1997, Thom Foulks went live with the Foulks.com website. Over the ensuing five years, he added volumes of information that he spent countless hours researching. When Thom was 3 years old his parents divorced and he found himself shuffled from parent to parent and from aunt to uncle. After a few years his mother remarried and he soon had new siblings, but they were much younger than him and, though he loved his siblings very much, he never really felt a part of his "new" family. Until the impetus he describes in "The Quest for Euphemia," he didn't have much inclination or care to find out about his family history. In his search, though, he did come to find more of a sense of belonging. He found ancestors who he felt a kindred spirit with, and came to a better understanding of his parents and the lives that they lived and how they became who they were. Thom passed away in 2004 and, though his website still survives, the family history information that he added is no longer accessible to the public. The text that follows was all taken from his website, word for word without editing or addition. It was posted on the web for many years, and Thom documents where the information was obtained. If there are an errors or information that he did not have permission to post, please notify us and we will edit appropriately. Our intention is only to make the information that he worked so hard to obtain available to other family members, near and far. This book is editable and we can also add information or pictures anyone would like to share (as long as it is their information to share or they have permission). Please contact us through the Touchstone Memories website. Everyone does have a story and the the Foulks family and our ancestors have some pretty amazing ones. Show Less

Customer Reviews

I am almost finished putting my mom’s book together. I spent Saturday and most of yesterday working on it. I can see how this could become quite habit-forming! I’m already thinking about doing another book filled with pictures of our family members - there are a lot of us!

Thank you again for your help! Your site is actually quite easy to figure out. Sometimes I just need a little nudge and someone to tell me I can do this!

The more I used the program, the easier it became. Pretty soon I was zipping right through it. Some of the pictures didn’t turn out where I wanted them to, but I kept rearranging text or pictures so they came close. I think you are doing a fantastic job and I can’t wait for the culmination of the book.

I was reluctant at first to work on this memory book. I didn’t believe I could do it, or if I wanted to. It has done more good for me than you could imagine. I began having a good time, remembering my childhood, growing up, and meeting - and marrying - my husband. Those memories were not as deeply buried as I thought. Thank you for the opportunity to give to my children some parts of me and their dad that they should have had long before now.
