I do remember “life before Ancestry”. When RootsWeb was the latest and greatest and bulletin boards were hopping with obituary lookup requests.
I have a lot of interesting ancestors. Not famous ones, but some of the stories I’ve discovered make me wish I could go back in time and have a heart-to-heart conversation with them
But I think the most unusual name in my tree is actually my great-aunt. Especially since I’ve never figured out where the name came from.
For this entry, I want to share about a challenge I’m experiencing in my research and what steps I can take to resolve it.
I thought I’d share about a special treasure in my family that first sparked my interest in genealogy.
