From the line of Gomer

A few years ago, I was able to track our history back to County Cork and coming over to the new world via The Blue Swan pirate ship to the Carolinas and then up through Kentucky. However, how does one track oneself back even further. I’ve been reading an amazing book written by a cousin of a colleague of mine. The title is The Spiritual Roots to Racism: A Psychological Profile to Lucifer by Anthony  L. Young.  This book is intriguing on its own. However, please look at what I found about my heritage while reading it:

Genesis 10:2-5: And the sons of Japheth (who was Noah’s son); Gomer and Magog, and Madai, and Tubalm and Meshech, and Tiras, and the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah, and the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanimm by these were the coastland people of the Gentiles separated according to his language after their families, in their nations.

From these people of the gentiles came the lineage of Gomer, whose descendants included Armenians, Germans, Belgians, Dutch, Luxembourgers, Liechtensteiners, Austrians, Swiss, Angles, Saxons, Britons, English, Cornish, Turks, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, and the Khazars. 

I’ve never heard/read this before. But it is nice to have the tie in.
