Genealogy–do you really want to uncover your ancestry?

You are perhaps thinking about doing genealogy research because you do not have much information on your family. Would you like to find out how far back you can trace and what was going on during certain time periods when your relatives were born?

You may learn about health problems in your family which can give you a better understanding of your medical history: “Tracing the illnesses suffered by your parents, grandparents, and other blood relatives can help your doctor predict the disorders to which you may be at risk and take action to keep you and your family healthy.” Surgeon General’s Family Health History Initiative ( While tracing your family do you really want to find that you may have what you consider an undesirable person in your family tree? Think first before undertaking genealogy research! Are you ready for what you may find or what you may not find?

  1. As Cheryl says GENEALOGY can open up many things. My brother in New Zealand has a wonderful website about genealogy. He has traced our family back many generations for both my parents families. It is very interesting to see the information, where they come from, connections and pictures that he has come up with. Cheryl has also been in touch with him and he does help people out all around the world in accessing information about their relations/ancestors in New Zealand. I have done some searching for him and find it very addictive, but it can be expensive also.
    Try it–you never know you may become addicted too……
