The reproduction of the family is no less than the flowing water moving forward, with a long source and a long stream; Looking back, it will evoke all kinds of emotions. With the migration from generation to generation, the scope of the family is expanding day by day, and the human relationship stories generated are becoming more and more complicated. Some people say that the continuation of a family is similar to that of growing melons on a vine. A generation grows, and this invisible vine bears a melon. The seeds bred in the melon are ready for the continuation of life. Such a metaphor cannot be said to be inaccurate. But I still like to use a big tree, the shape and branches of the tree to describe the development and changes of the family. Generally, it is also a personal directional thinking. No matter how big or small the family is, it develops forward from one point, just like the root of a tree. Only when there is a root can there be a trunk; If there is a trunk, there will be branches. Moreover, how many branches are dense, it has something to do with the growth of this tree, and with the superposition of the annual rings, the branches of the tree will only be more and more, more and more dense, more and more thin, so there are details. It is with the branches layer by layer and the branches and vines layer by layer that the plump image of a big tree is formed. Only when the root is deep can it be rooted, and only when the branches are numerous Can the leaves grow. This comparison is especially suitable for the derivation of the family. Small families are differentiated from large families; Large families are evolved from larger families, so progressive, in short, a surname, in the long history, countless branches of the family will multiply. It is these branches like seeds scattered in the south, north, west, east and west, gradually building a large family name, and gradually breeding the prosperity and development of each family. In the history of family development, there are three words that are particularly important: Zong, Zhi and Fang. Zong refers to the sect, the origin of a local surname, the region can be large or small, can be as large as the ancestor of a surname, can be as small as the beginning of a natural branch; Branch is the tribe, the branch behind the sect, the heir of an old ancestor, had their own changes in the advanced development; The back of the tribe was the head of the House, whose meaning was similar to that of the tribe, and the branch was smaller. In daily family affairs, the roof is also the most important; Why? The relative range of Zong and Zhi is relatively large, which has become the continuation of the origin in inheritance. In general things, people will not be so excited. However, the head of the house, which is closest to each other at ordinary times, is also the most human family atmosphere. The head of the house is a kind of distinction of ancestors, which is similar to a kind of mark or number. The branches on the top of the tree seem to look like the same. It is not easy to distinguish subtle differences. If there is no reasonable distinction between future generations, as time passes, it is also like branches and leaves on the treetop, which cannot be distinguished. Therefore, the ancestors used this method, which is very good and practical. Housing must have the meaning of housing. Every household has a house to live in. No matter it is a straw house or a wooden shed, if someone lives there, he will be angry. If someone has someone, he will do something else, there’s a future. As the saying goes, one room with lights and one room with lights also have such a meaning in it. If there are several brothers, they will be divided into several houses. The order of the houses is completely based on the ranking of brothers. The eldest is the big house, and the old is the last house, three brothers have three houses. If there are five or six brothers, there are five or six houses. It is not rare for a large family with five or seven houses. It can be seen that the development of the family has been thriving and living. At the back of the room, there is a finer distinction between things. Don’t look down upon this division. The distance is close to each other. Here, the performance is clearer. This kind of careful distinction will not affect the unity and harmony of the family. Usually, in order to deal with the relationship or contact between the marriage and the relatives more conveniently and reasonably, the huge family would face such a tiny division. Let’s take Lingshang as an example. There are more than twenty households, which are divided into two parts, but nothing has been divided; However, Lingshang and Wanli are separated. One part of the Wanli family and the ridge are both East, but there are too many families. There are four or five families. How can we not separate from each other? Ling Shang’s family is a big house among the big houses, which means clearly that they are the descendants of the eldest son born by the eldest brother among the old brothers. Therefore, in the genealogy, Ling Shang’s family ranks first, and it is right to open the genealogy; lingshang is also the eastern part of the big house that lives in Wanli. Although it moved to Lingshang, it is only two or three miles away from Wanli. The small family affairs are basically solved by themselves, in case of such a big event as marriage, funeral, marriage and marriage, Wanli and Lingshang would gather together and obey the dispatch arrangement of the respected people under the clan, which is also the concrete manifestation of family culture. As long as there is such a need, no matter the elder or the young, as long as they can contribute, they can’t escape. Otherwise, they will be criticized by the whole people. The bay is divided into two Bay, the Upper Bay is a house head, the big room, the lower bay is a house head, three rooms; The second room is separated, the population is relatively small, not far from the Riverside, there are several families, several households on the Gaoji mountain that can be seen, and several households living at the mouth of the mountain between Shangxia Bay. Because it was the same clan and the same branch, when they met unusual weddings and funerals, they still had contacts with each other, contributed to each other and supported each other. In this way, in a small place, the reputation of the big family was rising day by day. The changes of clans, tribes and houses are essentially the detailed development history of a family. The understanding of them is helpful to the understanding of the fundamental. A family has the root of a family, and a person has the root of a person. Only by knowing the root of a family can one be more clear about one’s own roots, even if one day, leave the family where you choose to live, go to a new place and start a new life. However, everything related to the family and the family are connected with each other will be rooted in the bottom of your heart and wherever you go, all of them will still have the tension and charm of life inheritance in the big family. That is to say, people in Lingshang chose to move, and many young people chose to settle down in cities ranging from far to near. However, the family culture belonging to them will never change. As long as they open the genealogy, they are still the big house in the big house, and they can also distinguish which side comes from the east and the West. They still keep all kinds of memories of ancestors, and they will not lose the feelings and grace of one side of the land.
