Have you ever thought about your family at all? Where you came from way back when – the history of your last name – the stories about people you have never even met, just share the same DNA as you do!?!? I worked for Ancestry.com for 3 years, and started working on my family tree while I was there. I found so many different stories of both sides of my family, some I had heard parts of, and others I hadn’t heard at all! Helping my husband work on his tree, has given us other answers that he has needed!
In order to move forward, you have to look back. You will stay in the same place until you decide TO look back long enough TO be able to move forward! I don’t know if you understand what I mean – but you can’t stay where you are, and you don’t want to go back… but by looking AT the past, and those before you, you can then understand more so that you CAN move forward! Totally different backgrounds, ways of life, stories… but fascinating all the same!
Today, whether you journal something – you scrapbook something – or you jot something down on a sheet of paper… (on second thought, try not to do that… if you do, make sure you have a place to put all of the journaling entries in, like a box), find something that you want to document, and get started with your family history! Who cares where you start, pick something from your list we did in an earlier post, and get it going!
Thanks for stopping by, until next time!
