Understanding Via

Hello dear guest,

My blogger name here is Via.  Welcome to Ancestors Within.

As you may have already noticed, I try to live peacefully, travel thoughtfully, understand deeply and share creatively - sometimes all at the same time.

I try to live peacefully through quieter living.

I try to travel thoughtfully through my continual journeys.

I try to understand deeply, even by any other name.

I try to share creatively, mainly with the assistance of my ancestors within.

You are most welcome to contact me by email as long as the mutual benefits are sufficient.  Which aspects of my research are most likely to be relevant to your own research interests?


What does it mean to exist?

What does it mean to make the most of existence?

What do you know about your historically fascinating journey into existence?

As you read through Ancestors Within, you may discover you have the answers to at least a few of the mysteries and puzzles I am yet to solve.

Exploring genealogy is often a time-consuming activity.  It is also one I have found to possess deeply satisfying emotional rewards I cannot yet explain.

My ancestors could not enjoy exploring history in the same way as I do.  They were too busy struggling to survive, as many people still are in the world today.

Most of my ancestors had little formal education.  Many of the ancestors I have discovered through my family history research could not even read or write.  I love reading and writing.
