The genealogical pursuit is exciting, enriching, and can be full of surprises--but it can also be challenging. Weathered Roots Genealogy Services was originally created as JQJones Genealogy in 2020 with the desire to provide unintimidating and affordable genealogy services to the average person interested in family history. It was also established in response to an urgent social need for a truer examination of our connections to history.
All service is provided online and has aided a diverse group of clients. Weathered Roots' vision is to ultimately contribute to clients' knowledge of self by deepening their understanding of their own ancestry and heritage.
Thank you for following Weathered Roots through its second year! Whether it was through likes or shares on social media, recommendations, purchasing merchandise from the store on Bonfire, or (most importantly) trusting and allowing this service to aid you in your family history journey, every bit of support always means a lot.
At the two-year mark, I only have one update to share: last year, 50% of the profits from the store on bonfire.com were donated to the World Health Organization's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Thank you for your support of the store AND of the World Health Organization. In 2022, I want monetary donations to be directed closer to home and so I've selected SOS Children's Villages Illinois as the recipient of this year's donations. Read about the organization here.
And, of course, I'm ecstatic about the upcoming release of the 1950 US Census and all of the genealogical gems that will be (fingers crossed) unearthed!
As always, feel free to contact me here on the website, email, or social media. I look forward to offering my services in 2022 and in the years to come.
