I've been doing family research for a few years now and enjoy the challenge. I hope to provide my family with info. on our family tree that will bless our lives and the lives to come.
In the Old Testament it talks about the Prophet Elijah:
Malachi Chapter 4:5,6
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
I believe that doing are family history will do just that, turn our hearts to our fathers and our fathers hearts to us.
This is God's plan to love one another. We are all Gods children.
