I am Polynesian and am interested in finding more about my ancestry. This is difficult up to a point because our heritage was passed down by word of mouth - in stories. To my knowledge, my ancestors did not keep records in writing until my paternal grandfather started keeping books. He has passed away so my father and his siblings along with their first cousins are kind of piecing the past together. It's all very interesting to me. The world has changed so much that interest in keeping our tradition alive is almost well gone. Our grandparents generation are the most vital piece to our past and they are all very old now. I have only my maternal grandparents left so I am making the most of what time I have with them to try to understand my history and culture through them.
