You can clearly see your spiritual, emotional, relational, and medical history in creating a family tree. Do you know your family tree? What kind of blessings or curses are in the family? In this module, you will create a family tree to visualize your origins
What you’ll learn
Discover your Origins
Creating a family tree entails looking backwards to finding your family roots, discovering yourself and bringing to life your family’s history by exploring the lives of those that came before you. ‘‘Remember and Claim all of who you are’’ - Moses Sowale. Doing this gives you a connection to your heritage.
Create your Family tree
Your family tree is a type of chart or diagram representing generations of families and how they are connected throughout the years. Family trees can be simple and just include your nuclear family members, or they can go back many generations to enable you to see where you came from. Your family tree can include names, marriage dates, birth dates, and pictures.
Explore your Family history
Have you ever wondered about the oldest family tree? It belongs to Confucius the famous Chinese teacher, and philosopher who lived 551–479 BC. The family tree covers 43,000 pages in 80 volumes. The family genealogy has been maintained for some 2,000 years and has 2 million known registered descendants, with some estimated 3 million in all. You will be creating one of your own by writing down what you know about your family genealogy, and asking family members for clues, pictures and documents that can verify your ancestry. You can also search for records, news stories and land deeds.
