Simply a Rose to brighten your day,
And maybe lessen the cares in your way;

That in knowing you, many others grow!
Hope these sites will help you in your quest.
rootsweb.com i used this site and iv'e been able to trace my ancestors all the way back to Adam and Eve.
go to google then type rootsweb and the name of a great grandparent or whoever and you should be able to find something like where they were born, their spouse, their parent(s), what year they died etc.
hope this helps and good luck with your search
through geneology. you can look through city files if your family has lived there for a long time...otherwise, hit up the mormons. mormons are way into geneology, and they have geneology libraries that are free to use by the public. if you're really interested, funmail me, and I can tell you how to do it. best of luck...live the dream.
Start from your mother and father's sides of the family
Talk to grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Go to the websites mentioned and start your journey.
It's exciting knowing who you are and the origin of your roots.
