The Coming Genealogical Dark Ages

With all the genealogical information being made accessible on the Internet, some might think this is the golden age of family history. To Curt B. Witcher, however, we may be entering a new dark age where vital records and the memories of people alive today are lost forever.

"At the same time we have more (technological) ability we are losing interest and focus on keeping the thoughts and the words for future generations," Witcher said.

Witcher encouraged people to write. "Write as you never have written before."
You can read the full article by Michael De Groote published in the Mormon Times. 
We have always passed our genealogy orally through our generations. With technology these days we can preserve our Samoan Family Genealogy in many different ways. Don't let the time pass by that we don't record any of our family special stories, experiences and memories however small or big they are. They are our Family History as well.
