Arthur L Hathaway is a writer, author, educator and entrepreneur with a passion for history. He is the author of several small writings, and was the editor/writer of a San Diego, CA based Church newsletter. Arthur has written numerous articles during his professional career along with a monthly financial newsletter entitled “Your Finances.”
As the historian of his family’s linkage, Arthur researched and accumulated historical data he felt should be shared with the family. However, after reviewing all the data, he realized that the information collected should not be for one family or group of people. It should be distributed to all in need of knowing who he as a people really is. Arthur felt that if someone could see what was developed through his research, they may have a better understanding of who he is as a person and a people. He understands that yesterday’s problems are also today's’ problems. If we can review yesterday to see what has changed and what has not, we might help solve some of the problems of today.
He started researching family history as a young man, when realizing that he did not know who he was. An open conversation with a group of people of different ethnic backgrounds sparked his interest. They started talking about their heritage, along with homeland, culture, and customs. Arthur only knew that he was born in Kentucky and there were family in Tennessee and Florida”. At the time, that’s all he knew. This created a great void in him, which started his journey for questions and answers of who he really was. Arthur needed to fill that emptiness from within.
