The Inspirations That Lead to My
Inspiration is a force that ignites mental, physical, and spiritual drive that allows individuals to pursue any goal, despite all the obstacles that may be laid in front of one's desired purpose. You don't know where that inspiration might carry you, from one moment to the next but, through will and determination, you begin your quest. You sometimes don't know where it came from but you pursue it. You don't know the direction of the inspiration will take you, but a desire in your heart moves you. No matter what your quest may be, you feel that it may help the well-being of many family and friends who may benefit from your quest.
God begin to open up your gift
Now that you are inspired, where do you go. Who do you ask? You must seek out the truth.
Who Do you Seek to find the Truth
The People you are writing about must get involved and
you must ask many questions.
You must create the puzzle
Your family, friends, and associates may give you some sound advise that may add pieces to the puzzle you are putting together (the shape and size of the project) but you, as an individual, must make the final pieces to this puzzle fit. You must take what you have learned from them and make a dream a reality. No matter how many people may say that what you are doing isn't worth it, you continue on your quest. The strength of your people should inspire you to learn of the things of your past, and through trial and error, you find the right path to find your family information. One day the family becomes the source and you start, your dig. Start with yourself. Birth, married, and other information. Create a group of files for the people you grew up with your brothers and sisters.
Who do you ask?
When you ask your mother, father, grandparents, and other family members to give you the puzzle pieces, one by one, you can complete your task. When you finish your task, you feel satisfied in knowing that you finished something that may help alot of people. Inspiration found a way to keep you on that path when the thought of quitting hit your thoughts. I never gave up, I never gave in. Now, we are one family united under one umbrella, through the inspirations of many people, who were so eager to find about this large family. We as a people should be proud to know the very fruitful past that we come to know as the Bracy-Demaree-Mungo-McDow Family. My extended family has reached new heights. My people have reached over the globe.
Origin of My Search
It was August 15, 1979, just returning home from a trip from Fort Dix, New Jersey, I began my family history research quest. That day has brought me to what I have accomplished today, the history of my family-the ancestry of my four grandparents. A day which will live in my mind forever as the humble beginning of this quest. That hot summer day was the day that I became interested in finding out who my people were and where they came from in the world. This field called genealogy became my curiosity. The curiosity of the past and how they affect my life and the lives of my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews would live over the world today. A curiosity that has carried me back to the very beginning of time.
A curiosity that has carried me to the countries of Nigeria, Cameroon, Gambia, The Congo, Senegal, France, Scotland, Norway, England, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Isreal, and the Garden of Eden. A curiosity that has lead me to know my ancestors and the descendants of my ancestors; extended, immediate, and nuclear. From Adam and Eve, Seth, Enos, Kenan, Mahalaleel, Lamech, Noah, Shem,Ham, Japheth, through the general consciences that we all come from the same blood lines and the fact that the three childre
