Your whole life you've been told you have Native American ancestry. Grandma said her parents came from Sweden and grandma wouldn't lie, would she? You saw a record once, somewhere, that listed your grandfather as a native of France. We all have preconceived notions when we start researching our family history. But, sometimes those "facts" get in the way of the truth and create enormous brick walls in our research. Join Crista Cowan as she shares some tips for overcoming preconceived notions so you can have family history success.
About Ancestry: Bringing together science and self-discovery, Ancestry helps everyone, everywhere discover the story of what led to them. Our sophisticated engineering and technology harnesses family history and consumer genomics, combining billions of rich historical records and millions of family trees to over 10 million and counting to provide people with deeply meaningful insights about who they are and where they come from. We’ve pioneered and defined this category, developing new innovations and technologies that have reinvented how people make family history discoveries. And these discoveries can give everyone a greater sense of identity, relatedness, and their place in the world.
