Genealogy and politics are starting to cross over each other. In the past, people were inspired to begin working on their family tree in the hopes that they would discover that they came from royalty. Today, there could be people hoping to discover that they are related to a President, Senator, or other representative.
Politics colors the background of history. The noteworthy events that took place in the past, for good or bad, are almost always influenced by politics. Therefore, it is a good idea for genealogists to familiarize themselves with what the political landscape was like where, and when, their ancestors lived.
This blog is the first “FamilyTree.com Tool Kit”. It focuses on politics. The purpose is to make it super easy for genealogists to locate the various blogs that have been posted on this website and that have something to do with politics.
