homes for vital records, old photos. diaries and letters. They can contain
important facts which will help us uncover our family secrets. Some more things
we can do are explore newspaper archives and records relating to our families,
search databases of names on the web or even try websites specifically about our
ethnic heritage. If we don’t want to spend a lot of time on searching, we can
