Hey guys! I'm really new on here, but I was wondering if you guys could help me out?

I want to write a story about this girl and her family (dating back to the late 1800s) as a family saga type novel. The only problem is I really need a central mystery that can go on through all those generations, and not be the tacky 'chest of lost gold'. 

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

Thanks so much!

It could probably be a ghost mystery and maybe the relatives and friends of the descendants can investigate the house and see what secrets lie in there.

Adding onto technologygirl maybe the ghost could be connecting them all to an amulet somehow.

@determinedangel: yeah, and maybe one of the decendants of the ghost could be wearing it. Like, it could be a family heirloom or something.

And maybe the amulet would lead them to an Aztec temple dating back to the Spanish inquisition, and they would learn that their family was famous and important back then. Why? Because in the deep crannies of the temple, there lies the most powerful power source in the world: a deep red crystal called Titinanium.

They might have to do something about the power, or something might happen. Maybe one kid every generaion has to do something. Just adding on to others

Titinanium is a power source discovered in Aztec times. The Palia family (made this up here) were the ancient protectors and users of this energy source. The energy could do anything. It was even powerful enough to nuke the Milky Way. It could make hoverboards, create planets, even make energy technology. Technically, this crystal energy source could hold the future.

I hope you use this idea!
