Days Gone By - stories from the pastGenealogy Information

Researching a family tree brings life into all who have passed on

True genealogy is more than a just documenting facts. The facts we discover tell a family story which breathes life into all who have passed on. The combined lives of our ancestors are the sum of who we are and family details help explain why we do the things we do.

Understand our ancestors

Sometimes all it takes is the mention of a name in a local newspaper or court record to guide us as we trace the life path an ancestor took. By following these minute clues within a historical context, we gradually gain a better understanding of our ancestors’ lives and the decisions they made along the way.

As I conducted research for interesting stories to publish and/or post on my, I continually found buried genealogy information, such as marriages, deaths, etc. and stories that I knew would be of great benefit to family researchers, but it was so deeply hidden that most search engines would not find it.
