There are many different reasons why people decide to research their family history. From nosey-ness and blind curiosity, a desire to track down a mysterious family member, or finding yourself in a new stage of life – the desire to explore and understand more about the people who came before you can come out of nowhere but take you on a journey that is incredibly powerful, and ultimately life-changing.

We love that no two Ancestry customers are the same. You have all begun researching your ancestors and building your family tree for different reasons. So we asked customers to tell us why they first started their family history research and were touched by the responses we received.

Read our favourites below, and then share your own reason for why you started in the comments!

    I am fed up with reading ‘So we asked customers to tell us’ because I never get asked anything! I get emails about the blog, I get emails when my sub is due and that’s it! I know this is not the place to raise this but I have tried and tried to get an answer from Ancestry customer service as to why I am not getting the emails that I should be getting. Draw a blank every time!

    This is very interesting that people are looking for their family history for different reasons, hope they find it very well. I think every family should make a website that contains all the history and family member’s name in it. That will make them find it easier. I have a small company of server hosting. If you guys want to look for a server company you guys can check my company Palexweb.com. I provide very good service at cheap rate. You guys will not be disappointed.

    Greetings. Explain what an essay is? As I understood it unlike the “for and against”, an essay-opinion is supposed to express your own thought on a subject. The peculiarity is that I need not only to express my own opinion on the problem, but also to reflect other points of view in the essay. Am I right? Will I be able to order such a work on https://edureviewer.com/essays/best-plagiarism-checker/ or it is supposed to be written by myself?

    I strongly think that any family records previous to DNA and parenthood testing are procedure. I have no motive to accept as true that every one of my listed family was accurate to their partner. But according to cheap assignment help experts, people will recline about who the right parents are. visualize how much further of that go on back in the day.

    The big difference between genealogy and house history research is that we only want to trace the homeowners when they lived in the home. We don’t trace them from generation Do My Essay For Me to generation. The only exception to that is if a family lives in the same home for multiple generations. Sometimes you might even find a house that is owned by the same family for over 200 years. It’s rare, but it can happen.
