There comes a time in most people’s lives when they begin to ask “Who Are My Ancestors?” You feel you know yourself. You have built a successful life. You are pleased with what you have accomplished so far. Yet, there is this question nagging at you. You seek answers about the people whose existence created your own, the people we call ancestors. Were they like you? What were their lives like? What have you inherited from them? You may have heard stories about some of them. Are they true?
This kind of questioning is often triggered by a major life event such as the birth of a child or grandchild; a significant birthday or anniversary; an upcoming retirement or maybe it’s simply something you’ve always wondered about. You want the answers for yourself, but you also want to pass down a family history legacy to your descendants. This information is something they will treasure forever.
Motivated by your quest for the unknown, you might have
begun searching in the sea of information available on the internet, only to meet with dead ends, conflicting information or worse yet, no information at all.
Perhaps you have not begun this quest because you know there are different things you wish to do with your valuable time. You may not be interested in the research process, yet you want the results.
