Ancestry.com

I've been sucked in!

My friend mentioned it the other day, how they opened up the 1940 census, and I took a look. And then I signed up for the 2 week free trial and I've been going wild ever since.

I love this. I've been wanting to find out more about my dad's side of the family for the longest time. I feel so disconnected from that side and I fear all the information will be lost, if I don't get on it soon. Armed with the names of my great-grandparents, I set on in! I found information about my grandparents (such as their full names, which I didn't know, and the names they went by!) and I've been digging deeper into finding my great-grandparents and further back. Wow!

I've also found a couple second cousins of mine up in Canada and we've been chatting. I love it!

I better get back on and save as many documents I can before my membership runs out. Hope your Friday the 13th is going well!

  2. Very cool! My mom's side is well documented dating was back, but my dad's side hasn't been as well tracked. It would be interesting to learn more!

  3. Oh, I would be so addicted! I'm obsessed with "Who Do You Think You Are?" I love genealogy.
