An exploration into the lives of those who came before you.


It is said that we die twice, once, when our hearts stop beating and again, the last time someone says our name. Every one of us holds in our DNA, the traumas and triumphs of our forefathers. So much of our being is explained through the lives of our ancestors. A turn of phrase, an inexplicable fear, a talent, a dream or the curls of our hair, we carry in our souls the transgenerational traumas and triumphs of our forefathers. We do not travel alone through time, but, together, epigenetically and intrinsically connected to ancestors we have never met. Discover their stories, motivations, recipes, terrors, romances and joys of your ancestors.
