Our culture

At Creative Roots, we believe that family history is an important part of our culture.
Genealogy is the study of family lineage, and it can be a rewarding process to trace your family's history through historical records. We have many resources available to help you in this process, including online databases, family history books, and local archives. By preserving family history, we can connect with our past and better
understand who we are.

“Creative Roots produced the most amazing book on our grandmother’s family dating back to the early 1600s.  The book was well put together with family photographs and records.  We cherish this book and have to pass it down to the generations to follow.”
