Family Tree Wanted Update


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 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! 🙂

Happy Searching!

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.”

Those Places Thursday ~ West Union School Yearbook 1916 – 1917

This was my Great Grandma Jessie Opal CONN FENN BRITTON yearbook from when she was in 8th grade at West Union School.  The book was made of paper with pictures glued in it. I believe some of her siblings are in the younger grades.
