Everyone has a unique family history story to tell, and we want to hear it. Whether you’re just getting started or already a seasoned genealogist, we’ve all had an “Aha!” moment or made a discovery that made us stop and think. This might be finding out that your great grandparents were abolitionists, or that you come from a long line of veterans. Discovering your family history uncovers a wellspring of stories, and emotions. Whatever your discovery is, we hope you’ll share it with us today.

Share your story and we’ll turn it into an image for you to share! You can send us your story a couple of different ways:

  1. Visit our Facebook Page and if you have liked our page, send us a private Facebook message with your story.
  2. Visit our Twitter Page and tweet @ancestry with your story.
  3. Lastly, if you’d like you can email us at with your story.

In your message, please indicate whether you’d like us to share your story on our Facebook page for others to see.

Let the sharing begin!

    My ancestor is the first one of my side of the family to come to America. All I know about his family is his parent’s names, and a brother.
    I have no idea about my ancestor that was still in Ireland. My family comes from Roscommon, Ireland. My 3x great grandmother is from County Cork. I have her maiden name, but it is a very common name.
    Her name is Judah Donohue, and she married Patrick Dagnan. There are many different spellings on Dagnan. I would love to find this treasure. It would be so good to break thru that wall.
