Genealogy and Heritage 

Stories & Experiences

Since getting started, I've had many experiences in learning about my own genealogy and heritage. I've shared some of the stories I've found with you here, and will continue to do so. 

This is your chance to share your story. I will publish it for you on your own page on my site! You can share something inspiring about your family heritage that you recently uncovered, or it can be something funny, or it can be something out-of-this-world that others just have to see.

So have fun with it!

Show us how unique your stories and experiences are! Let's use this opportunity to motivate and encourage each other to keep on searching for our ancestors! Stories that get a lot of comments will be featured here on this page, so share your post with family and friends!

Submit YOUR story!


Some story ideas...

  • Bravest ancestor - are you related to a hero?
  • Immigrant ancestors - Who in your family came to America? From where? When?
  • Coolest ancestor - are you related to somebody rich? famous? a historical figure?
  • Local history - are you related to a state founder? An important figure in the community? prominent religious figure?
  • Railroad history - Have a distant cousin who drove a locomotive for a living?

Have you found a gem in a cemetery somewhere off the beaten path and you're just dying to tell someone? Have you been on an incredible genealogy road trip recently and want to regale an eager audience? Maybe you learned something really special about a new ancestor?
