  • Have you ever watched a genealogy program on television and said to yourself, “I wish someone could do that for me”?

  • Do you have questions about where your family came from, or about a particular ancestor?

  • Did you receive unexpected DNA test results? Are you looking for answers?

  • Would you like to pass a legacy on to your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews?

  • Did your ancestors live in New York City, or do you have Jewish or African-American ancestry?

Knowing answers to questions about our family histories is about more than names and dates. Answers can provide a stronger sense of identity, resilience, and community. If you’ve found yourself asking any of the above questions, We Go Way Back LLC can help you.
