My greatest passion has always been genealogy (or family research)!
Over the years, I have not only pursued my own family history but I have
tried to help others in their individual hunt for their 'roots'.
Here are links to MY family tree as well as my husbands.
I am also including web addresses for the USGenWeb counties I am both County
Coordinator and webmaster for.
So you want to trace your family tree!
Where do you start?
Write down all those facts you heard from Grandma and Uncle Phil. You
know you heard about where and when Nonna and her family came to
Talk to your OLDEST living relative 1st. But keep in mind,
not everyone is going to be either as interested or as excited
as you are!
It doesn't matter whether you are using a computer
or not, you still need to put all the data together and into
some kind of 'order'. This order will have to be something
that works for YOU! (I would suggest you break your data into
'family' groups. There are all sorts of resources available
to help you organize your chaos!!! And key among them
is a computer! Find yourself a very reliable computer as well
as 'decent' software! Do your research BEFORE you buy and you
won't suffer after!
