"Every human being who comes to this earth is the product of generations of parents. We have a natural yearning to connect with our ancestors. This desire dwells in our hearts, regardless of age.... No matter your situation, you can make family history a part of your life right now.... [C]hildren can draw a family tree. Youth...can help the older generation work with computers. Parents can relate stories of their lives to their posterity."
Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
