"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
October is Family History Month, and Family Sleuther is celebrating. It's a great opportunity to share with the value of ancestry with our family and friends. It's also a month we can really dedicate ourselves to promoting and building interest in America's second most popular hobby (after gardening...snooze!).
Here's to unfurling those family trees, collecting more saliva samples for DNA testing, interviewing grandma and grandpa, and cataloging old photos. So happy dance your way to the archives or your local genealogy society and make the most of it!
