How Genealogy uncovers the Past

You want to learn more about Ancestral Healing and the stories of your family's past? How does Genealogy help you ? Genealogy is the study of families, family history and lineages, and the tracing of their lives through the historical journeys of their time. I use the many records, and documents and other resources that are available to learn about your family. There is so much to be discovered and we begin with what you may already know.

FIRST GATHER WHAT YOU KNOW

The gathering begins as you pull together all of the information you have from the attic, boxes and dusty drawers including letters and photographs. Some families will have great documentation already and some may have almost none. Where ever you are there will be more to discover. This is just the starting point but truly helps identify the questions you have about your family story and history.

 BEGIN OR CONTINUE RESEARCH

When you have gathered what you have found, your story is already beginning. We will look at it together for accuracy.  If it is based on Aunt Martha’s memory, I may need to be sure the information is correct. If it is based on historical documents, we will know it is a great place to start further research. If you do not know anything about your family, do not be concerned there are many ways to discover your story.

UNDERSTAND THE MANY RESEARCH TOOLS AVAILABLE

The Tools I use to confirm that accuracy of information and continue the research are the many genealogy databases and websites that are available.  My expertise in understanding each database and what it has to offer, is the way I find additional information about your family's journey. There are many amazing stories told from the small details contained in a census and birth or death record.  I am also able to use the DNA as a genealogy tool if you are interested in testing. If you have adoption in your family there are ways to discover information about your ancestry.

PRESERVE YOUR STORY

​Now that your story has been captured, let's share and preserve it.  There are many choices in preserving the family story for generations to come.  Keeping a family tree through an online platform or software program that can include historical documents, personal photos and private stories is one of the most common ways to preserve the memories. But there are also many other options we can explore and several genealogy products available including charts and books and other types of media.
