I started this blog in 2010 to share the research that I have been doing since before joining Freemasonry. The passing and sharing of knowledge are paramount to the continuance of Freemasonry and society. "A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots." (Marcus Garvey)
