Welcome to Ancestors Alive! Genealogy.
Why trace your family history? It’s all over TV, certainly. Family lore makes fascinating storytelling at reunion and holiday gatherings. Sir Francis Bacon believed that in it “consisteth a part of the knowledge of a man’s own self. It is a great spur to virtue to look back on the earth of our line.”
But genealogical research takes WORK, discernment, experience. Are you afraid of the time and dedication required to use a basic Ancestry membership, or to answer even simple questions about your lineage?
If these questions pertain to you, it might be time to find someone to start your research for you on Ancestry. Ask yourself:
- Do you know where your grandparents were born, or how they met?
- Do you know where your ancestors were 100 years ago?
- What part or parts of the world does your family come from?
- Did any of your family members participate in any US war?
- Do you ever wonder why you have the eye color, hair color, skin color, talents and interests that you have?
- Do you think that your family is just boring, like everybody else’s?
If you answered “I DON’T KNOW” to Questions 2-5, you have the interest to start digging in to your family history.
If you answered “NO” to Question 1, your answers lie in genealogy.
If you answered “YES” to Question 6, get ready for some BIG surprises.
At Ancestors Alive! Genealogy, we use online software, libraries, sites and archives. With information from you to begin our work, we can trace your family tree back for generations. Results vary from family to family, but some people have gone back to the year 300 AD. Some have found their descent from European royalty. Others have discovered that they have early settlers, pioneers of industry and self-made success stories in their own family histories. Regardless of the specific findings, Ancestry Alive! Genealogy will locate stories, careers, goals, aspirations and even hidden truths about those who went before you. You WILL be surprised.
Ancestors Alive! Genealogy also provides descent books and written histories in book form about the people and events we find in your search. These are wonderful gifts to mark family milestones, birthdays, or holidays. They are proof of your beginnings that you can hand down to the next generation.
