My Genealogy Philosophy:

This sums it all up for me!

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them,
Or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees,
And some of them, you know,
Do not particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't care to know.

But here's another question, which
Requires a different view--
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?
