Many years ago I realized how important it is to know where you come from and I started digging around in my family "forest." I know that I come from many different types of trees and I wanted to find out what kinds of trees those were. So far I have found roots in England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and right here in North America. I think that Alex Hayey said it best: "In all of us there is a hunger, marrow- deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum. An emptiness. And the most disquieting loneliness." And remember, while you are searching for your roots, "Genealogy begins as an interest, Becomes a hobby; Continues as an avocation, Takes over as an obsession, And in its last stages, Is an incurable disease." ~author unknown
