What do you think?
Personally if I ever feel interested enough about it I'll probably just pay some other people who specialize in it to do the footwork and when I have more time do my own research on it.

Subtopic
Do family trees matter?
Unless there is heritance involved, I don't think so. Only way I see it mattering is as a form of entertainment.

I would presume that the best way would be to ask elderly relatives, collect some data/surnames and then approach it from there. You can also do genetic testing (no blood samples are involved, just saliva samples) and then send that off but I believe there's a fee attached-and of course, it can only vaguely reveal geographical areas instead of specific countries and it can't divulge what your ancestors surnames were if you don't already know.

Personally, I think it's pretty easy to at least get some idea of your family tree if you discuss it with your grandparents. (although, my grandfather never knew his father/wasn't given any information about him), which in my case leaves a question mark.

I could get the names of my grandparents that way, maybe if I'm lucky great grandparents. grandparents been dead a while.
Perhaps records of births and death, could get me farther.
Genetic testing seems kind of iffy to me on how accurate they are.
Appreciate the thoughts.

I had to do a school project in 7th grade on my family tree. I used Ancestory.com.
