Do You Know Your Heritage?

Knowing one’s heritage is the nature of someone’s birth..where your parents came from…where their parents came from…where their parents came from, and on and on.
I recently got so far as my great grandparents and found I am mostly a split between Swedish and Irish.
While I haven’t gotten in to the details of who my ancestors were, what they did for a living, how their lives progressed, it is interesting and self-satisfying to know who they are by name and where they came from.
It is encouraging to know I can find out more and what they went through.  If you are a family, or just single, knowing your heritage is a big thing.
Besides personal identity, it delivers you from the day-to-day of your acquaintances, connections in public, neighbors, coworkers, immediate family as being your only universe.
There is a whole other aspect to your life.  That is your heritage, which no one can take away from you.
In my age bracket, 55+, having grandparents and great-grandparents not originally from America was not uncommon.
As you delve in to it, it can give you a whole new aspect to your life and definitely enrich it.
So why don’t you go ahead, go on a search, go on a journey to find out who you are —- from the time you made it to your homeland, or, participated from the start in the settling of your country.
