• What We Do!

    My Roots Foundation is a non-profit that promotes historical awareness.  We help in the discovery and telling of your story. We also offer training to aid in the collection of family and community histories.  Contact us to discover, preserve, and share your stories and gain knowledge and inspiration from your ancestors.

     

  • Why We Do It!

    Knowing your past will help you navigate your future. Everyone has a story and that story should be shared so we can learn from the mistakes and successes of our forefathers. If we do not take ownership of passing on the stories from one generation to another they can be lost forever. We show honor to those who have done courageous and good things, but how can we honor those that we don't know what they've done?

  • How You Can Help!

    Share your story and help other do the same! If you know of a group that needs inspiration, let us find and share the stories of their past. As a nonprofit, My Roots Foundation depends on the donations and support of our friends and communities. Please help us continue to bring awareness of the inspiration that comes from family history and genealogy. Join our community, spread the word and share your story. You are the best author of your story! We are here to help you discover, write, and preserve it!

Everyone has History Worth Telling!

Contact us to help you share yours.
