A sense of family is very important to the emotional and mental health of every person. In today's world, we sometimes lose focus of its importance. We, the staff at Genealogy Junior, strive to help build a unity within the family and a love and appreciation that will strengthen the resolve of each member.
Ms. Lynda I. Fisher
"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness."
— Alex Haley, Roots
"There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings."
— Hodding S. Carter
"Generations pass like leaves fall from our family tree. Each season new life blossoms and grows benefiting from the strength and experience of those who went before."
-- Heidi Swapp
