Many genealogists hold to the maxim that you must know where you came from to understand where you are going. To that end today the African Renaissance launches today in the Republic of South Africa. The first step: Encouraging genealogy.

“The family tree and genealogy project, . . . seeks to empower its members to conduct research into the family history, and mainly to create awareness about the significance of family history, genealogy, customs and traditions. The project will see the African family rising in stature as it is able to trace its roots for many generations going back, and establish its linkages with other related families in the country, the continent and the Diaspora,” said KwaZulu-Natal Premier and Chairperson of the African Renaissance in KwaZulu-Natal, Sibusiso Ndebele, at the official launch of the KwaZulu-Natal family tree project.
