Gaining Wisdom and Drive from your Genetic Memory
My Dad never took a piano lesson in his life, yet he could play any song he heard.  How is that possible? One of my ancestors was noted for being exceptional with numbers. Is this an inherited ability?  Can an inner drive to excel beyond all physical odds, be genetic?  Genetic memory is a process in which memory is passed down through the generations and stored in our DNA.  Although controversial, science has proven genetic memory exists. I will share some interesting stories so you can ponder or decide if genetic memory’s plays a role in your family history.
Use your Heritage to Build Resilience
Ever feel like another emotional curve ball just hit you? All you wanted was a little more time to yourself so you can research that new branch of that family tree you just started. Your family may think all of your genealogy work is wasted time.  Not so!  All that family research and tree building time is valuable.   In fact it could be the difference between life and death. Understand how famous celebrities use family history to get through the road bumps in life. Listen to how and why you could share your family stories.
