I used to think that genealogy was boring. But that was before I'd done anything with it yet. Now that it has become addicting to me.... I hear others who have the same complaints that I had (before I got into it). so, I wantedt to take a name from my pedigree sheet and try to bring it to life. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the largest genealogical library in the world. This is evidence of the importance the Church puts on genealogical work (now more commonly referred to as Family History). The reason for such interest in ancestors comes from doctrines of the Church. Mormonism teaches that after death, a person's spirit still has the opportunity to learn about the gospel, and accept Jesus Christ as his Redeemer. But in order for him to become a member of Christ's Church, he must be baptized and have other saving ordinances performed in his behalf. This is the job of those who are still living. In temples, members are baptized, or have other ordinances done, on behalf of those who have passed away (such work is said to be done "by proxy"). This gives that person, if he chooses to accept it, the opportunity to become a member of the Church. Every person who has ever lived has a right to make such an important choice. Members of the Church are strongly encouraged to only perform ordinances for people from their own family lines, and to obtain permission from surviving descendants of the recently deceased. The LDS Church gathers genealogical information ...
OnApril 25, 2009 PAA (Pilipino-American Alliance) hosted their 2nd annual production of Barrio Fiesta. The event featured dancing, music, spoken word, and cultural performances to celebrate the accomplishments of talented Filipino's. The Pilipino-American Alliance (PAA)s objective is to promote and preserve the Filipino culture and heritage while encouraging cultural awareness and honoring cultural diversity. The PAA will encourage unity among UC Merced staff, faculty, student body, and maintain relationships with other universities/colleges and community organizations, such as the Central Valley Chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS). PAA was founded during Fall 2005 and became one of the first clubs of UC Merced. Before UC Merced opened its doors to the first Golden Bobcats, many students had already acknowledged an interest with creating an organization based on the Pilipino/Pilipino American culture. Starting as a social group, PAA has grown into an active group in and out of UC Merced since its establishment.
My interview for RTV Serbia's Artbox at the opening of my show in Novi Sad, Serbia. Translation by Boris: Translation of Interview for the Serbian TV channel RTV's Artbox I have been raised with little awareness of my ancestral background which includes European and Native American blood.
