Discovering Genealogy, One Ancestor at a Time.
"Every man is a quotation from all his ancestors".
I love this!
Nice to see Emerson was think about genealogy!
Very different from Thoreau, who preferred solitude and meditation!
My friend Ann Bradshaw, posted a Thoreau genealogy quote on her blog: . In his quote he is referring to the Mohawk American Indians and their "lack" of knowledge of their ancestors. Arguably, he implies that he felt Americans had a much deeper understanding of their own ancestors, relying on more than just stories (written documentation perhaps).
Thanks for sharing your comments!
