Everyone has a family story. It’s about the joys and the struggles, the triumphs and the heartbreaks, and the laughter and the tears. When we find ourselves at a crossroads, we’ll always have one place to look first: our own story. Ancestry.com is helping people write their own family stories.
At Ancestry, the next-generation sequencing technology offers innovative and informative ways for people to explore and celebrate their family history and discover how they are connected to different cultures across the globe.
