Today is the Global Family Reunion – an event to celebrate our “interconnectedness” and to help in the fight against Alzheimer’s.
AJ Jacobs, editor at large for Esquire, got the idea for the celebration after learning about the advances in genealogy that are proving how interrelated we all are.
A group of researchers are in the process of making the biggest family tree ever – with more than 240 million people on it so far. Join the family. I’m in the process of gathering the information needed and will share my findings in a later blog. Excited to find all my “cousins.
Hopefully by seeing how connected we all are … we’ll treat each other with more respect and kindness.
