Yesterday I watched Who Do You Think You Are? where Lisa Kudrow searched for her father’s family, and discovered a long-lost family member. Today, as a means to distract myself, I decided I wanted to learn more about my family. I have a copy of my family tree on my mother’s side, through my Grandmother (it appears that we are from Filipow, Poland on that side), but I don’t know about anything else. I’ve always wanted to know. I may not get anywhere, but hopefully it will be an interesting and distracting search.
I wonder why people have become so fascinated with the past, with discovering their ancestry. I know that I should be living in the present, and according to everyone, envisioning the future so it manifests itself. I’m trying to do that, but I really want to know where I came from. Is anyone else fascinated by finding out their roots?
