》In some parts of the world there is an increasing number of people trying to find out the history of their families.  Why? Is this trend a positive or negative development?

Example writing:

原创 Jeenn Lee Hsieh

What you can discover about the roots of your family is not likely to make headlines, but may be crucial in building a family tree that can be both interesting and surprising.  Trying to search a family history is a positive attitude toward something that you learn from and grow from it. Good or bad, one thing is sure: you cannot erase the past.

 

Some people are actually not interested to know their family roots.  The thought of finding out how they end up where they are at the moment simply does not intrigue them enough.  They think it is useless to get whatever information leading to who were they related to--great, great grand-parents, and great, great grand uncles and aunties.  Hence, it seems that embarking on a project to create a family tree is not unlike digging the graves of the once-upon-a-time family members.  Besides, they are convinced that there is nothing exciting or worthwhile about any serious research on family histories.  This point of view is somehow understandable, considering the effort might turn out to be futile going through much trouble in vain to gather details about folks in ancient blood line long since buried and gone.

Nowadays, curiosity about family roots appears to pay off.  A lot of people are getting engaged in exploring their family histories, for good reasons. At this internet age, relevant information is made easier and more accessible.  Chiefly out of curiosity, many people would like to go beyond the frontiers of the living and the dead, believing that this is an important aspect in knowing the origins of their very existence.  They make a point by attempting to bring the memory of the past into the present because family history matters in a particular way to the development of a country as it is.  The argument seems to be based on the wisdom that looking back into the past not only can satisfy human curiosity but also hold a mirror to the future.  After all, it is always good to remember those families that ever lived before, and never to forget the heritages that have been inherited.

For an increasing number of people trying to find out the history of their families, it makes sense keeping in vivid memory of the past as well as illuminating a path for the time to come.  While being able to discover as far back as you can the names and lives of your ancestors is of course only a small step in studying the history of human civilization, the experience may be regarded as a giant step of its kind in knowing more about your family backgrounds long, long ago.  So much excitement along with so much curiosity about things you never knew will never have to end.
