Genealogical Quotes

Begin to unlock the knowledge of who you really are by learning more about your forebears. — James E. Faust, October 2003

Great families in England bear date from William the Conqueror; the rest from Adam and Eve. — Author Unknown

Genealogy, n. An account of one's descent from a man who did not particularly care to trace his own. — Ambrose Bierce

Our greatest responsibility is to be good ancestors. — Jonas Salk (1914-1995) US physician and microbiologist

Some may feel that they have conscientiously sought the Spirit in the task of finding ancestral information without success and therefore attribute their lack of success to insufficient faith. If you have felt this way, I suggest patience. Give the Lord time. Have faith that in His due time, all of the information you need will become available. But in the meantime, ask the Lord to direct your attention to other ancestors whose information is more accessible. — David B. Haight (Ensign, May 1993, p 23)

The only thing to do with family skeletons is to take them out of he closet and dance with them. — Author Unknown

When you hear a man talk of nothing but his father or grandfather, or some great-uncle, what they said and did, what places of honor or profit they filled, you may then take it for granted that he has no merit of his own to recommend him. — Author Unknown

Why should I care about posterity? What's posterity ever done for me? — Groucho Marx
