I created The Roots Exchange & Education Society as a means of educating, sharing, and connecting with others in pursuit of their ancestral pasts. Genealogy is a passion of mine and I strongly believe that EVERYONE should know who they descended from. In that regard, it is my hope that this site will enable you reconnect with your “Roots!”
