The first time some of us consider our genealogy may occur while standing alongside a grave. We wonder who came from where, becoming inquisitive regarding our own family tree. A bit like solving puzzles, putting together family history takes you across eras, puts “flesh” to names and ancestors you have never heard but would like to have known, and keeps you thirsting for more. The stories that unfold are fascinating and rewarding.
