Your Family: Past, Present, and Future

Image accompanies referenced article

A really neat blog post that has been making the rounds is Your Family: Past, Present, and Future.  I’ve even come across individuals, with no known genealogical tendencies, cross-posting this on Facebook.

It’s a very visual perspective on genealogy and the context of how we, our ancestors and our descendants fit into the big picture.  It’s a fun read.

Consider sharing it with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and others.  It just might spark some interest in them to learn more about their own family.  They might learn what we already know, every family has some really neat stories to tell!

The author ends by stating ... “In any case, for now, there’s really only one good way to learn about where you came from—so start asking.”

A statement all of us family historians can certainly identify with!
