There comes a time in your life when you want to know more about yourself, more about your family, and your lineage. This is often necessary for all of us as we age, it is part of trying to discover what you truly want in life, or what your purpose is. “Temet Nosce Means”, in greek “Gnothi Seaton”, in English “Know Thyself”, once written in the temple of the Greek god Apollo, and shared in Latin, an adage that remains true to this day, in order to truly find purpose, you must start by knowing yourself. Your family and linage is an important part of you, with traditions and habits that might have been passed down unknowingly by ancestors, you will be able to know what the future might bring by looking at the past.
