Tracing back our ancestors can be quite an interesting and fun experience. It is nice to know where we came from, the different names, where they lived, where they worked etc.

Have you ever traced your family tree/family heritage?

Did you do it yourself or did you hire an agency?

I would LOVE too.
But it takes money, and time....
Maybe one day, when I can.
It would be really nice to see the jigsaw unfold.

Thinking there may be some French in there?
Bet I'm right...lol. :)
Same here. I registered on Ancestry.co.uk years ago, but found out that other than for being able to manually fill in the names I already know, I was unable to progress further without paying.
exactly....they are good, but we need a few coins to get that ball rolling...lol

I've never traced my family tree back very far, but I have talked to my grandparents a little about their parents and grandparents and have a copy of our family tree back that far. I did it as a school project many years ago.
Yes I have and found out that my great great grandmother was from Canada.

My wife's dad found out that they come from Swiss royality
I haven't, but my grandmother did. She has a family tree, but other than the names, I don't know anything about them.
My uncle spends a lot of time researching our family history and he travels all round the country visiting graveyards and cemeteries as well, to find long lost family members! He's uncovered several family secrets in the process, including an illegal marriage and some cousins with an extra finger on their right hand.... no, really!
My father's family is more of a mystery as there was a big falling out back in the 1940s and he and his mother lost touch with nearly all of their relations. Someone contacted him recently claiming to be a cousin but he decided not to follow it up, he's happy with the family he has.
I need to have spare change to be able to try it myself through an online site. Or pay for records to be researched.
I did some of this myself and someone I met online who lives in Europe also helped me. He was an ex diplomat and was able to get information on my European ancestors far easier than I could.

I went back to the 1800's, and then got stuck, and all this took me about 18 months to do.

I now have it all stored on my computer, and it was fun doing it though at times, very frustrating.
