Thanks once more Darla. Your words always find my heart... I began my Family History work while my children have 10,8,6,4,2 years old and after a lot of tribulation, like a divorce and Mom's CVA that made she dependent, I almost took my life away... I know that they, my ancestors, helped me to face the chalenges... I keep going on...
Excellent article. My wife an I are currently the Ward FH Consultants and we're giving the Youth a Sunday School lesson this week on doing their FH. You gave me a few good ideas, thank you.
Yesterday I came across some old binders of my mother's filled with family history stuff. While I assumed that all of the information had been entered on our PAF program (yes, I still use PAF), I thought I had better check before throwing the papers away. I ended up spending hours entering names found from information on a single handwritten sheet my mother had received from a distant cousin. A reference to a marriage led me to confirm that marriage on Ancestry, then a check of census records gave me the children. It was an exciting day. Today I am checking on Family Tree to see if I need to add them there as well. I probably added a couple of dozen names or so to my family tree yesterday.
