I knew what you meant.

There are dozens of guides to doing genealogy on the net. You can get personal coaching from the volunteers at a Mormon Family History Center, too. There are, if you are in the USA and have European ancestry, thousands of sites with data that are free. What YOU have to do is decide if it is worth it to you. My usual estimate is 100 - 300 hours, spread out over as many spare hours as you can find, to get back to people alive in 1850 or an immigrant ancestor, whichever comes first. In the USA, at least, Ancestry.com is a wonderful resource, but it is expensive; $189 for a year, if you pay all at once. [That may be expensive to you; it is what I pay for wine for Thanksgiving, if I am hosting. It isn't expensive to me. Raising registered Arabians costs more than that per year.] I get the impression you are a lot closer to 16 than I am. Most (90%) amateur genealogists are over 50. It is a dull sport, compared to, say, threading the needle in a bat suit, but oddly satisfying to us geezers.

You are not your ancestors and you know what country you are from.... if you want to know who they were and where they came from then there is only one way and that is to research and prove from the records each person generates during their lifetime.......... that starts in your own home with your own records http://familytimeline.webs.com/recordsin...

Hello Raihana,

There are several things you should do, Among them are:

1) Research how to find your ancestors before joining any genealogy sites.
2) Contact your relatives and find out as much information about names, dates of births and deaths, marriages and births as you can.
3) After doing this join a Genealogy site such as Ancestry.com or Findmypast. There are quite a few choices available and most offer a free trial.

They are not that cheap but it gives you access to a great deal of information such as births, marriages and death records. You will also have access to the Census Records which are taken every 10 years but these Censuses are not released until 100 years after they have been taken, so the census taken all over the world in 1901 was not available to see until 2001 and the 1911 was not available until 2011. The next census will be taken in 2021.census.

I am British and I subscribe to Findmypast. This is the only genealogy site that gives you access to the British 1939 census. This special census was taken at the outbreak of WW2. I will also say that this site is excellent for their Customer Support and are always happy to answer your questions, whether a new genealogist or an old hand.

There is also a great deal of literature available to budding genealogists. One that comes to mind is 'Genealogy for Dummies'.

Finding ancestors can be extremely rewarding and give you a sense of achievement.

If you do decide to research your ancestry I wish you the very best of luck

Ancestry.com

You are only from one country. Your ancestors are from other countries. My ancestors are from Norway and Ireland. But I am 100% American. I'm not a European-American either. I'm an American, a Citizen of the United States. You are not who your ancestors are. You are who you are!

There are a growing number of companies who offer DNA testing just for this, maybe do an internet search. I would imagine it would be pretty expensive though, but may get cheaper as more people use them.
