    The Importance of History in Genealogy Research

    in Entertainment

    Tonights show takes on an important Topic; of the historical backdrop in Genealogy.  Genealogy is a word used to describe a line of descent traced continuously from an ancestor to you. There are direct ancestors and others on the branch who are blood relatives. For me Genealogy is not only locating ancestors but profiling them through the historical context in which they lived. This is important especially with Native and African Ancestors whose history is mirred with movements they had no control over.

    Chief Langley Genealogy Lecture on ''Historical Barriers and Beliefs''

    in History

    Persuasion at work always takes place within a network of relationships. A relationship with someone, somewhere will be the starting point for putting your idea “in play,” and relationships with and between people you may not even know will often be the end point for getting it adopted. You need a circle of influence, a network of people who know people who know people. And it may be too late to form such a circle when you are ready to make your sale. The relationships must already be in place. The biggest barriers, of course, arise when you face negative or hostile relationships in the pathway of your idea.  1.
