for one's roots can be exciting, fun, complicated, intriguing,
and when first beginning, at times can feel overwhelming.

passengers list, record archive, newspaper clipping, or

names, owned property, registered all their births, deaths,
marriages, and none of their records were lost, burned,
destroyed, or beamed up!
