It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I have mentally been writing this post for several months. I am still researching my family history. I have been super busy with my kids, family life, and work. I work on my family history in any little spare time I get. I used Ancestry.com for awhile, I needed to clean up my tree, and I’ve still been scanning photos. I have many to share on Family Tree Wanted FaceBook page. I have made wonderful connections with people and hope to make many more in the future. Using FaceBook has been very beneficial for making connections. I’ve also gotton some great ideas. I need to find the time and visit a couple road trip locations because the documents are not available online yet. There is never enough time. Too bad I can’t be paid to research my own family tree. LOL! 🙂
This was a draft blog from a while ago. The thought was there, just not the follow through to finish.
“I have been working on some different things lately. I finally signed up for Ancestry. They had a good six month deal. I have used it for free but now I have a better understanding of how it works. I have been building my tree on Ancestry since 2011 or from the one I imported. I realized recently that I had a lot of extra junk in it so I have been working to clean it up. I had been sharig my tree but decided to unshare it for a bit. It always bothered me the way people linked to pictures or documents that I had scanned in without telling how they were related. I understand it better now but I don’t want to link to any pictures or documents without telling the person thank you for sharing the information and how I am related. I think this is all about collaboration.
I did connect with a couple of woderful ladies using Find A Grave that are doing MONROE research. There is a lot documented on the MONROE family but it has been fun sharing pictures and stories.”
