Find your links to the past!

At sometime, someone in the family will ask, "who are we?" "where are we from?" "what were our ancestors like?" "who are the people in those old photos stored away in a shoebox that grandma cherished?" "how can I trace my family history?"

Amateur genealogy has become an important hobby today. Get involved! Think about it...

 What will you tell your children?

Perhaps, it's time you created your family tree!
