A family tree is made up of many branches and limbs that extend out in many directions. The root of the family tree is our heritage, our country of origin, our history. The trunk of our family tree is our namesake; that thing that unites us all and from where the limbs of our tree branch off. From there we will find the many individual families that spread outward stretching upward as if to touch the sun.
And then there are the leaves that cover the canopy of our tree...you and I. Each leaf represents an individual person with a unique design and purpose. It is here that we see the beauty of our family tree as each leaf glistens in the sun.
It's that lineage which throughout the years has made us strong and healthy and has given us direction on how to grow.
You are a leaf on a mighty tree!

Want to get started tracing your family history? Don't know where to get started? Check out these resources below to learn how to get started with your family tree.
The easiest way to start is by filling out an Individual Report sheet on you, then one for each of your family members (mom, dad, spouse, children, etc). Once that is complete you can then fill out a Family Group Sheet.
Start with information you already know and then work from there. Don't get to hung up on trying to find all the information about one family member before moving onto the next. It is sometimes best to take a break from trying to find information and then return to it at a later date.
Over the years I have learned that if I stop researching an individual and then come back at a later date, I tend to find more information about that person. This has happened more than once.
Have fun and remember there is no right or wrong way to research and keep track of your family heritage.
