I've been on a treasure hunt.
I searched my own family tree back about 3 generations before I got stuck. Then I started on my husband's family. (That's his grandparents pictured on the left.) I was plugging along at a snail's pace and then I came across an entry that tied my husband's family tree into another. They were long lost relatives about 10 times removed of course, and I don't know who did the research, but with their help I was able to trace his family tree back several generations in Canada and then a couple more into France. There were names and dates from the 1600's! What an unbelievable treat!
The only problem I have right now is figuring out how to document all that I have found. Once you get beyond a couple of generations there are so many names to keep straight and organized. What a fun problem to have, though.
