That probably sounds like a weird thing to be asking on a family history blog and perhaps it is, but the thought crossed my mind quite some time ago.
I am a bit on the fence about reincarnation – I would like to believe it is possible. It would be good to get another try at life to see what you could make of it the next time. However, even though I would like to believe in it, not knowing of any way to find proof that this is possible, I will remain on the fence.
What I wondered was, if a person was reincarnated – how could you justify Family History? What I mean is, if you had been someone else a number of years before your present life, how could you research way back in history and collect all these ancestors?
Would each incarnation have its own family tree?
Now I write this down it does sound really odd, but I wondered if any other person had thought about this and what conclusion had they come to?
Please don’t write me off as some kind of nut, I am not, I am just curious and sometimes my mind flies off at a tangent and this is the result of one of these flights of fancy.
If anyone has anything to say about this, I really would like to hear from you.
