3 Reasons why you should explore your family history

Would you like to know who your ancestors were? Where they lived? And what happened to them? Then exploring your family history will take you through time and help you gain an insight about your relatives and heritage. Here are 3 reasons why you should:

Uncover new information

Looking into your family tree can be very fascinating. You’ll be to able to uncover new information about who your ancestors were, where they lived and their names. You may even come across new relatives you never knew you had or even find famous people you’re related to.

Create your own family tree

Creating a family tree will help organise everything you have found out in a clear and easy manner, including relations and marriage and child lines. This will be important in years to come to show future generations where they came from.

“Learning about family history is important. It is essential to understanding ourselves and basic humanity and diversity. Family history also helps to keep memories alive and allow each generation to have an idea of who they are and where they come from.” -Taleta M.”

Find valuable documents

Exploring your family history will help you find valuable documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates. These can uncover new and interesting information and help you gain an insight into your ancestor’s lives. You can also look at other documents to help your search including newspapers, war records and the census.
