Find your family roots for free

There is nothing quite as intriguing as your family tree. It's human nature to wonder, "Who am I? Where did I come from?"

Of course, families like yours have always passed down information about ancestors by word-of-mouth. This has been going on for millennia but, of course, your family stories have gotten murky over the years.

A lot of details are missing and various family members tell different versions of the same story. Which is exactly why websites like Ancestry and MyHeritage have become so popular.

For a fee, usually after a free trial, you can get reams of information about your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and so on. Suddenly, your life becomes clearer. You know which countries your ancestors came from and when. You know how many kids they had and a lot more.

There's a reason these sites charge you money. It takes a lot of work to gather official records that go back decades or centuries.

Still, you don't need to pay for your family tree. If you're willing to do some of the work yourself, you can find your ancestry for FREE.
