When my father was dying he told me he would never die as long as I lived. As a child, I didn't understand what he meant. 

I have come to understand that we bring our ancestors alive when we build our family tree.

"You live as long as you are remembered"

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came 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." -- Alex Haley, Roots​
