Have you ever researched your family heritage? Do you know who makes up you family tree? Being adopted, I am the proud owner of the blank family tree. Sad as it may seem, it's a lot easier to do a family tree when you know your birth parents names. However, it would be just as interesting to find out about my parents heritage. I know a lot of schools do different variations of family trees throughout the years, and the kids are lucky their Papa has done some searching.
My Father in Law has done extensive research on his (our) family tree and has obtained several documents from Ancestry.com. They have an extensive collection of data from census records to turn of the century news articles. They also retrieve any information you may need at minimal costs. He (FIL) has several (more than 50) Cd's full of information he has collected over the years and I believe his hope is to pass this information on to his grandchildren.
I'm not sure who I would like to be related to, although a King or Queen would be nice. Don't you think?
I think the whole thing is fascinating.ReplyDelete
