Roots Day

Roots Day

When : Always December 23

Celebrate your genealogy, as today is Roots Day. It's a great day to celebrate your heritage. Many of us are returning to our roots today, as we head home for Christmas. Returning to our roots is a warm, cozy and comfortable feeling, a sense of belonging.

A hobby and a quest: Many people get caught up, and become captivated, with researching and uncovering their family roots. It can take interesting twists and turns. We often discover we come from exciting and fascinating places. We find links to famous people in history. Sometimes, we come upon dead ends to our genealogical family tree. Other times, we find a distant relative, who has performed some of the very same research. The result of the encounter could be huge sections of the family tree, literally handed to you.

Origin of Roots Day:
We all can certainly relate to the importance and the need of finding our roots. Its a sense and a need of belonging, that is ingrained in our being. So, we fully understand why this special day was created. But, we have yet to uncover the roots of "Root Day" - - who created it and when?

We will continue to dig and explore this day until we have uncovered and exposed the roots of this very special day.
