Working on a New Family Tree

Did I happen to mention that genealogy is another  interest of mine. I've recently bought a new Family Tree Maker. I'm having a great time adding relatives, from ancestry.com, that I didn't know I had.

I love it when a leaf pops up!!! Our family has a lot of extended ancestral names in it...some are Kelly, White, Ketchum, Sharkey, McLaughlin, Price, Wallace, just to name a few. Most of them hail from either England or Ireland.

I guess knowing about your ancestors, tells a little about who we are, too. It's interesting to see the repeated names and dates within the families.

There are a lot of genealogy sites out there, but  for now I'm using the ancestry.com that came with the program. The free access runs out the end of April, so I've been scrambling to add as many ancestors as I can, until then.

Hope there are also some genealogy buffs out there, too

  3. Good luck here. Your photos are beautiful. I too am into geneology. I have been doing it about a year. And meeting so many relatives I didn't know.
