Trying find out about a family history is a good way to learn something and grow from it. Good or bad, one thing is sure: we cannot change the past.

No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness. ” —Alex Haley This quote shows that finding our family origins and family history are very important. Sometimes,our family history can influence us.
So I interviewed my father and my sister. My father’s side of the family originally came from GUANG DONG China,in the south of China. There are 9 people they are my grand-parents;aunts;and my uncles. Although my father is from the south of China but his great-great-grandfather lived in the north of China . Because that time in China,there were too many wars ,people had to leave their home to other safe provinces. Other way to say this is originally of my family lived in two or three Chinese provinces. My grand-parents were our country’s soldiers and my great-grand parents were the soldiers too.
They all struggled for freedom and democracy! My father said he was proud he come from a military family. My grand father he lived through world war two and the new china war. He always if gave him one more choice to join the army or live like the normal,he would choose the army,because he loved the army too much! From GUANGDONG my father moved to SHENZHEN. because in 1978 China had just opened some coastal zones. SHENZHEN was a new city and there were many opportunities for my father. Form that time my father was a business man. My mother’s side of the family is all from HAINAN province.
I only know about my mother’s side history is my grand-parents had seven daughters. My mother met my father while they were both on the way to SHENZHEN city. In 1986 they had their first daughter,my oldest sister. But that time they were not living together ,my sister and my mom lived in my hometown,my father was in SHENZHEN. In 1990 my dad had his own company and at the same time my second sister was born. After that they moved to a new city and bought our first house in that new city. In 1995 is important to me because I was born that year. When I was born my family was very happy because my family only had one son.
We lived in ShenZhen for 16 years and we were very halcyon happy. In 2008 my father made a big decision to move to canada. The reason is my dad hoped his three children have a good future and could live in fair society country. 2012 we moved to canada and started a new life. I think moving to canada is a new literary piece in my family history. It will be magnificent! In conclusion,researching my family history I learned so many things . i have learned my family history is magnificent and impressive. I have to be hard-working and continue my magnificent family history in canada!
