The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches.

Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).

Memory Jogger Monday - June 22

Are there any obvious or unusual genetic traits that run in your family line?

I have red hair and blue eyes. My son Matthew also has red hair and blue eyes. My brother has red hair. My father has red highlights in his hair.

My husband has brown hair unless he grows facial hair; which is red. His father had red hair and his sister has red hair.

According to the Huffington Post last year:

"Red hair and blue eyes is the rarest combination in the world
The majority of natural redheads have brown eyes, with others likely to have hazel or green shades.
But like red hair, blue eye colour is a recessive trait, meaning that both parents must carry the gene for a child to be blessed with it. This makes those with red hair and blue eyes the rarest minority in the world, with only 1% having both.
So, each one is about as rare as a four-leaf clover."
