Genealogy is the study of one’s self. It is learning about where you come from, what blood runs through your veins, it establishes your place and role in history, and the lives your forefathers (and mothers) lived to make you what you are…. It’s certainly nothing to be ashamed of.
However, there are many people who simply want you to forget who you are, the education system and the mass media certainly do not want you to remember your past, let alone wish you to preserve it for future generations.
They do not want you to exhibit any pride in your own ancestry and heritage, nor do they want you to look to your ancestors in order to draw your strength, and for you realise your true worth and your place in history.
They want to still in you, that you have no traceable past, which is why they teach each new generation that the only thing that should exist for them is the now, and in the simplest of terms, they lied to your grand-parents they lied to your parents – and they will continue to lie to you for as long as you allow them to do so.
