Afternoon all,

This is prompted by a visit by my youngest brother while I was burying bulbs in the garden - A relief from the concrete.
He was returning some of my old photo albums.
He is doing research on our family history.
Our dad was adopted sort of unofficially as he was an unwanted result of an affair by an unknown man with a married woman. The adoptive perents not having children of their own.

So I do not know my family line beyond my father on that side.
While I find my brother's research interesting I could not be bothered to do it.
I feel that I do not need to know that sort of stuff to feel secure within myself.

Does any one feel the need to know about such dead distant people?

No, can't say I give a flying fork whose chromosomes I've got.

When it comes down to it. What is important is who I am not who my ancestors were.
That being said I do like to hear stories of my forebears. I think it's very interesting that great gran delivered babies back in Saskatchewan and that a relative was in politics in Nevada. It added a certain coolness factor to a trip taken that we stayed with people that decended from his great grandfather's brother. Family and yet not family.
I like the fact that I have the same toes as my Mum and the same foot shape as my Dad.
Is it important? Not really. Not unless Huntington's disease, hemophilia, BC1 or BC2 gene or some other genetically passed down health problem runs in the family. Then knowing your ancestors gives you an idea what to look out for in your lifetime.

Mormons have some belief that family tree is very important. Not being Mormon I'm not sure what it is. Due to that they have great geneology records. Could a Mormon forumite please explain the significance of family tree records for the enlightenment of the rest of us?

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion, It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning, It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. - SpeakertotheLost
