Ancestry

Another addiction,
I did not need.
Although it is not junking up my house
and
doesn't need dusted,
like many of my other vices,
this one has really become a time sucker
for me.
 
I am
searching
and
reading
and
adding
and
connecting.
 
Surprised at how much is already done for me,
and
how willing people are to share,
I even connected with a distant cousin
and
managed to fill in a lot of blanks there!
 
I have to get away from this computer!
But wait,
there is another of those little leaves
and
another hint....
 
Honestly, folks,
it is worse than Pinterest!
 
Be warned!

Good morning,
Well dear friend I have been there. Shortly after I retired I did a family genealogy book on my mothers parents side. Spent 3 years with Ancestry.com and finally produced a 216 back to back page book on the two families. The best 3 years of my retirement. Enjoy your research...and don't leave any stone Unturned because you just.never know how that one clue will connect...I found that out fortunately the easyway and came across much information.

HAPPY EASTER
Karen

Yes, it definitely is addictive and you lose track of time while searching. It is usually my winter time thing to do since we are stuck inside for a longer length of time. I don't have a paid subscription at the moment, but the year I did, I scored on so many documents that I was able to download. Someday, I will make a family tree scrapbook - someday.

I love Ancestry.com!!! I was a member or whatever for about 5 years. I loved every single minute of it but it sure does take alot of your time! But when you find an ancestor ..you are so darn excited! Hope to join again soon. Have lots of fun. It is rewarding.

Yes, it is addicting but so much fun!!! I put together a book for my sister (made duplicate for myself) as a 60th BD gift 8 years ago. Still have maternal side to do but found out so many neat 'secrets' on our family. A good addiction for winter! Oops...it's spring now!!
