How important is your ancestry to you?
Do you feel your heritage makes you a unique person? How much of an impact do your ancestors have on your life?
I was looking through some very old family photographs last weekend and I found a photo of my great, great, grandfather. He was posed with his wife and two children in Prussian military uniform; a gentleman of Prussia's great era. I then realized how important my fathers, great and grand, have had an impact on me. And listening to the stories about them, I clearly see their qualities in my brother and I as well. My ancestors clearly lay out the image of the person I am today.
So I am curious, how have your forefathers and ancestors impacted your life?
