“Honor the “Walking History” of wealth that dwell among you — Your Elders! Listen, learn, record and chart their stories, we can benefit from their embodied knowledge; We are that much more abundant transcending the yoke of our Ancestors. And if you don’t know that by now, then start counting your blessings, starting with your breath. Drink from the fountain of Ancestral wealth, be full and then refresh the cup of another.”Excerpt from workingmylines blog: “Check Your Spiritual DNA” https://bit.ly/2kkoA1P

A bit of my take-away from this exciting episode:
- Research records accessible at County Clerk/Recorder Offices, Libraries, and include contact with your local Genealogical Society.
- Look for Family names at Mortuaries, Cemeteries and Funeral Homes onsite and check for an online presence, including Obituary listings.
- Think White Pages is out-dated? Think again, some Grandparents and Old School folks still have their Landline or the same cell phone number they first signed up for.
- And the wisdom of my Elders share that, “a little manner goes a long way”. When speaking with an Elder, make it your intention to give your undivided attention to the conversation with an open mind and ear. Do take notes and get clearance first to record.
Strengthen your Family Ties! Make a phone call, visit an Elder today; Invest in the time and gain wisdom that transcends time.
