Research your genealogy and family tree.

 
caucasian family - three generations Many of us have a deep-rooted interest in tracing our family trees and learning our genealogical history, as exemplified in the Alex Haley's book Roots.  In bygone years, compiling a family tree was a fairly arduous task, involving searches of city and town records and microfiche as well as family bibles and albums.  Today, with the advent of the Internet, making a family tree is easier and more popular than ever.

The world is more mobile today, and it seems like the days when families stayed in one area forever are gone.  Researching your family tree and learning about your genealogical history is a great way to reconnect with family members you haven't seen in a while, and to connect with those you weren't even aware of.  You can learn more about your family heritage, and may even discover where your talent for writing poetry comes from!
