Tracing Generations Family Tree Through the Culture Genealogy Society

Who is who way back in the family tree. Look at the different generations

When you start to look back down the family tree you can find many surprises waiting for you. Some families have discovered that they have American Indian ancestry many hundreds of years ago and had no idea about it until someone began to search back. Although genealogy can be a frustrating task at times when you hit a brick wall and cannot find a little thread to carry you onto the next person it is so worth persevering as such interesting facts can emerge.

A good site for helping you in your research is the Culture Genealogy Society website which includes many links with other reputable sites all over the world which specialize in the genealogy of different cultures. For example there are sites on American Indian DNA genealogy, and even European genealogy websites where you can retrace who your ancestors.

Many of these websites will give you copies of original documents and also a virtual family tree where you can trace your origins relatively easily through a combination of DNA information and surname/dates/occupation research.

It is a painstaking task to reconstruct a family tree but one where you will have quite an adventure as you find out the trials and tribulations of the family members you find. Did they rise to the occasion when times were tough or did they sink? Did they do acts of heroism or did they tend to keep their heads down and survive? Just for a laugh and to give an example of how interlinked families can be ex-president Bush is a very distant cousin to his political rival John Kerry and he is also a distant cousin of Hugh Hefner who founded the Playboy Empire.

So tracking back through the generations is a fun and fascinating activity and you may well find that you are related to someone famous or that you have relatives from some very different culture that you had no idea about.

The Culture Genealogy Society website will provide you with many different kinds of information from which you can pick up clues about the generations before you in your family and is well worth a visit.
