I Want To Trace My Family Tree But I'm Afraid Of What I'll Find...

Don't be.

You are not your great-grandmother or your great-great-great grandfather. Their decisions do not taint your life. In fact, their decisions, their beliefs are what have fashioned you today.

Currently in the world, we have this sad practice of 
judging our ancestors by our 21st century beliefs. Who are we to judge another lifetime by our standards? In that age, their lifestyle was acceptable and we would have behaved in the same manner. Who says that we are so far more advanced? Read the newspapers, the history books - you would have been them. Let them come forward, and judge you by their work and belief ethics.

Do not fear what you will find. Be proud of what you'll discover.
