Genealogy & Preservation
The research of our ancestors is important on many levels. It allows us the opportunity to view a small portion of our world’s history from the perspective of our past relatives thus tying us to important historical events in which we were unable to participate. Genealogy also gives us some sense of who we are and where we come from!
