WelcomeIn all of us, there is a hunger to know our heritage, to know who and where we come from. Investigating our ancestors takes us back in time and with each piece of evidence; a photograph, a letter, a family legend handed down, a newspaper article, or simply an entry on a census record, they all come together to tell us the stories waiting to be told. Forgetting one’s ancestors is to be like a tree with no roots because in every conceivable manner, our ancestors are a link to our past, and a bridge to our future. So come with me on this journey and by looking at the people that belong to us, we will make discoveries about ourselves.
