"IN ALL OF US THERE IS A HUNGER, MARROW DEEP, TO KNOW OUR HERITAGE - TO KNOW WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE CAME FROM. WITHOUT THIS ENRICHING KNOWLEDGE, THERE IS A HOLLOW YEARNING. NO MATTER WHAT OUR ATTAINMENTS IN LIFE, THERE IS STILL A VACUUM, AN EMPTINESS, AND THE MOST DISQUIETING LONELINESS." By Alex Haley

“It is important for us … to cultivate in our own family a sense that we belong together eternally, that whatever changes outside our home, there are fundamental aspects of our relationship which will never change. We ought to encourage our children to know their relatives. We need to talk of them, make effort to correspond with them, visit them, join family organizations, etc.” -Pres. Spencer W. Kimball
