An article in the Dallas Morning News, quoting a 2012 American Legacies Pulse Study, states that family history is the most important "asset" that we bequeath to our descendants.
According to the story, 86% of people ages 47-66 and 74% of those ages 72+ say that passing on family stories and memories means more to them than passing on material possessions.
There are many resources available on almost any family history topic. If you are frustrated at not being able to find what you want, or need help understanding what you have found, that may be a signal to join your local genealogical society.
Newcomers are welcome at all societies, where experts are interested in helping you. Remember that all of us were newcomers at some point regardless of our current skill level. We have all been in the same place as you, and we were assisted by experts who answered those "silly questions" we were hesitant to ask.
