Ancestral Attic

Welcome to Ancestral Attic! I’m Ryan Nelson, the founder and driving force behind this platform dedicated to unraveling the intricate tapestry of our genetic heritage.

My journey into the world of genealogy and DNA exploration began with a simple curiosity. After taking a 23andMe test myself, I was amazed by the wealth of information encoded in my DNA. But what truly sparked my passion was the discovery of relatives I never knew existed.

Through 23andMe, I connected with several relatives scattered across the globe. It was a surreal experience to exchange stories, photos, and memories with newfound family members, each revelation adding another layer to our shared history. Together, we embarked on the monumental task of piecing together our family tree, bridging gaps and filling in missing branches.

Inspired by the profound connections forged through this process, I realized the potential to help others navigate their own genetic journeys. Thus, Ancestral Attic was born—a platform where individuals can access resources, connect with genetic counselors, and enlist the expertise of family tree specialists to unearth their own legacies.

One of the most rewarding moments was persuading my own parents to take the plunge and join me on 23andMe. Together, we delved into our genetic makeup, uncovering distant relatives in far-flung corners of the world and gaining insights into our shared health predispositions. It was a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of our past, present, and future.

At Ancestral Attic, we’re committed to empowering you to explore your genetic heritage with confidence and clarity. Whether you’re embarking on your first DNA test or seeking guidance on complex genealogical puzzles, our team is here to support you every step of the way.
