African Secret Genealogy… So Many Ancient Roads to Travel

Standard

Secret GenealogyAs many of you know, I write about genealogy, in an “outside the box” fashion. We’ve been spoon-fed Biblical history in Sunday school and world history has been laid out before us in textbooks, movies and documentaries. But there is waaaaaay too much left uncovered.

The people of the world, really are intertwined. We all have ethnicities in our DNA that would not surprise us… it would shock us. Of course, we all know that white people can and do have African ancestors and we all know that black people can and do have white ancestors. And Asians… and Indians… and Middle Easterners… and Europeans… can and do have the DNA of a variety of ancestors. And I’ve written about African genealogy in my previous Secret Genealogy books but now it’s time to devote a whole book to it. I’ve always wanted to, but didn’t know if I could. But when I started writing a new Secret Genealogy book, the African chapter kept growing and growing… so it is standing tall as its own book, Secret Genealogy V – Africans in Our Family Trees. I have no idea when it will be finished, these books have minds of their own. But I thought I’d let everyone know that it is in the works and I’m enjoying the journey.

I Can’t Picture My Ancestors in a Synagogue

Standard

There are images ingrained in our minds and more than enough stereotypes about what our ancestors may have been like. Life was different for them. Many of them stepped into a synagogue instead of a church. They also stepped up into carriages instead of cars and huddled in front of outdoor fires instead of flipping on central heating. Today, there are Christians who uncover a secret, their ancestors were Jewish. And they embrace it. Genealogy is not religion; it studies the religious patterns of our ancestors, opening up colorful visions of history. With all the new technology at our fingertips, we collaborate with others and unveil surprises. Sometimes that means discovering that our family tree was originally made of members who practiced Judaism.
