For years I wanted to know about my family’s history but kept putting it off because I thought it would take forever to learn something meaningful, that I didn’t have enough information to start, that I had to travel to a bunch of places to even learn a little…
Man, was I wrong! I’m not going to lie, you do need a little bit of info to start (mainly names, dob, places of your parents & grandparents) but if you have that, mix in a some time & patience and you’ll discover so much! And you can do it all from the safety and comfort of your own home. You can read more about my results here.
This 3.5y long process has led me to know some amazing relatives I never knew about, and have been overwhelmed by how much things we have in common. What a privilege!
Not all of us need to know, but if you’ve been wondering, why not start today?
