Discover Your Roots
We Are All More Connected Then We Think...
"You are walking with the DNA of your ancestors... They are not talking to you, but they are walking with you." - Henry Louis Gates, Jr., host of the American PBS TV show, Finding Your Roots
Have you ever wondered where your family tree could lead you? How has world history shaped you? Are you interested in going on a journey of discovery of those whose shoulders you stand on?
The Georg & Agathe Foundation encourages others to research their family trees and heritage. As you explore our family's stories, we hope to inspire you to research your own heritage and discover more about culture and history. By discovering your ancestor's lives and contributions to your extended family tree, history comes to life and fosters a deeper understanding of yourself.
The benefits of knowing one's history can truly enrich one's life and often be transformative. Below, we've listed a few resources that may be helpful on your journey towards discovering more about your own family tree and history.
