We’ve gone through trials and tribulations, and a well-known adage has never been more true: That which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

The year has helped me to recognize how precious life’s “simple pleasures” truly are: The connectedness we feel from a handshake, a hug, and a kiss.

Don’t know how to begin your Family History journey?

Experienced, hit a break wall, or need to take your research to the next level?

Then The Family Tree Toolkit is for you.

The Family Tree Toolkit guides you on how and where to begin, what records are available both online and in repositories, what to do once you find the information, how to share your story and of course DNA discoveries.
