Genealogy without sources is called mythology.
To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?
–Marcus Tullius Cicero
He who careth not from whence he came, careth little whither he goeth.
