Exploring and researching my ancestry has been a great source of inner knowledge and expansion, connection, healing and inspirational for me.
What initially began as pure teenage curiosity has become a lifelong project that has so far taken me on a decades long quest for information.
I've managed to track generations of my Italian family, with a possible link to the Papacy inner circle in the 1400s on one side.
It started decades ago listening to family stories from my parents and distant relatives, scribbling rudimentary notes, starting handwritten family trees, culminating with me creating an epic family tree on ancestry dot com with well over 500 people so far.
My fascination with genaology eventually led to being the inspiration for a historical fiction I'm writing.
More recently, it has been a contributing catalyst for my research into DNA and Ancestral trauma and the clearing of these as I believe I am a carrier of my lineage traumas.
It's a rabbit hole which has lead into many separate tunnels to explore.
Pictured is the street in a coastal mountain town where my mother grew up in Italy, close to the Amalfi region. My dream is to visit and maybe spend part of my year there every year. .
