My name is Chastity, but all of my friends and family call me Chas for short. I created this website to assist others on their journey for self discovery by helping them to discover their roots.
Years ago I started a journey to discover my roots. I didn’t actually do it for myself though. My dad wanted to know more about the family history and, so in my spare time, I have been dabbling with genealogy for about the last fifteen years or so.
In February 2016, my dad passed away from lung cancer at the age of 72. I was devastated and took a breather from everything. Essentially I stopped living. I went to work and worked all the overtime I could get. I went to school as well, but basically nothing else.
My family all lived far from me and those family traditions we had, when my dad was alive, just seemed to be something I no longer had interest in. Then something changed rounding just after the 2-year anniversary of his death. I moved to Wisconsin from Arizona to live close to my mother.
I have been here since May 2018 and my life is different now. I am working on being a healthier me in every way. I work a lot still, but take out for things I enjoy like researching my family heritage. I am now on a mission to complete the family history for my dad and myself.
I now view it as discovering my roots and feeling connected to him.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I want to help others in their search for self discovery because knowing where you come from helps to map out where you are going. I want to help others to know their heritage and to connect with their history in a way they probably never have before.
I have always loved helping people and that is something I got from my dad. He was a humanitarian without the hype. He would have given the shirt off his back to help someone in need and I enjoy helping others as well.
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
My goal is to continue to learn new things about my family history and to help others along the way. My goal is to stay a complete human being by tending to my mind, body and soul.
I love history and discovering new things about my family history is a passion of mine which helps me connect to my dad and our ancestors. I want others to feel that same joy when they discover new things about their family.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Chastity “Chas” Guevara
