Why Family History?
People from every culture and every walk of life realize that we have one eternal bond to people in this world. We always have our families. The ties that we are able to have with our family members, be them living or dead, are a foundation upon which each of us stand. By reaching out to our ancestors we enrich our own lives by knowing our history and gathering their names and stories into our hearts. Nothing can compare to the sure joy and comfort that comes with taking on this task.
"Genealogies, family stories, historical accounts, and traditions... form a bridge between past and future and bind generations together in ways that no other keepsake can." D.B. Neuenschwander, April 1999
Woodrow Wilson stated:
" A Nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about".
Quoted in The Rebirth of America (1986), 12.
"Well might this be said of families also: A family "which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about."
Quoted Bridges and Eternal Keepsakes,
Dennis B. Neuenschwander, of the First Quorum of the Seventy, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, April 1999 General Conference
