Ancestry.com


Ancestry.com is a Genealogy website that allows you to find out who you really are, where you come from, and maybe if you’re smart enough you’ll use all that newly gathered information about your roots to know where you’re heading in life. The site’s concept is awesome, I can’t argue with that, I mean, have you ever wanted to know who your great grandparents were? and how about your great-great grandparents? I’m sure that some of you really don’t have a clue. Ancestry allows you to do just that, find out who your ancestors were, what they did, where they came from, plus a lot more. In other words, what the site basically does is allow you to discover and share your family’s history online, and you can also expand the information that’s already been collected, you can help make your family’s history more complete by filling out the missing gaps. After creating an account and logging in, you will not only be able to search for information about your family’s history, you will also be able to start your own family tree if no one has started it yet, and you can quickly grow it with a new feature that was recently included that allows members to add information and new people to family trees very easily using Facebook.[1]
