Hi there! I’m glad you made your way to my little site and I hope you find the information here useful.
A few years ago, while showing my daughter some old photos of the family, I felt an urge to trace my family tree. There were many reasons involved in this decision but probably topping the list was a need to reconnect with my roots and document our family history. As far as I knew, outside of some school projects, nobody in the family was doing any genealogy research and since I felt the urge to do it I became the family history nut who bugs people with endless questions and asks for old document and photographs. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
My first question to myself was “What do I need to know in order to trace my family tree and what resources are out there for me to use?” I quickly found out that there were A LOT of websites, databases, tools, etc. out there, both free and expensive. Since there is so much to learn I obviously made a lot of beginner’s mistakes. I decided to put this website together to help other people who wish to trace their roots. I will focus mostly on simple steps that will help you get started. Because once you get going, there is no turning back…
Let’s get started?
