~ Discovering Your Family's Past To Shape Your Future ~
I am a genealogist because I want to enable others to gain an appreciation for their family and themselves. Discovering who your ancestors are and what their lives were like gives you a deeper sense of self and placement in the world, and can inspire you to overcome challenges – or break the mold – to improve your life today.
Our ancestors’ struggles, sacrifices, role in history, and even their crimes can show us the difference real, everyday people can make in the lives of others and even in major historical events. Ultimately, understanding where we came from enriches our lives and more fully allows us to enrich the lives of others.
In preserving our own memories, we benefit our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and generations to come.
Deeper Roots’ blog is intended to provide tips, tricks, information, stories, and help motivate you to start your family discovery.
What if your great-grandfather was Thomas Edison’s assistant? Maybe your ancestors participated in the Civil War or helped build the first railroad across America. Perhaps you’ll discover that your grandparents immigrated from a part of the world you’ve always wanted to visit. Your heritage is waiting to be discovered! Contact me to discuss your ideas and questions – every initial consultation is free!
Your ancestors left a legacy. It’s up to you to find out what it is.
