Ever wonder where your ancestors came from?

Or maybe you would like to know more about your family history all together?

What is genealogy you might ask? Well, it is the study of and tracing of family history and lineage.

When someone decides to uncover more about themselves, it can lead to all sorts of new stories that were long forgotten.
