It was that question that started me on a life-changing journey, and it is likely that same question that has led you here. We all begin researching our ancestry for different reasons - a school project, a religious quest, rumours of a famous relative - but those of us who keep on going with it, those of us who turn it into a lifelong quest, all do it for the same reason. We all, at some point, had the same epiphany: that every single decision that every single one of those people made led directly to our own existence. That if they had done even the slightest thing differently, we may not have ever been brought into this world. It is that spark, that profound and mind-boggling realization, that moves us to keep seeking, to keep searching, to follow the ever elusive answer to how we got here.
