For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I have always been interested in my ancestors and used to ask my grandfather about the old days and kep records as a small child. About five years ago, I searched in earnest at the Latter Day Saints church, which was open to everyone.( I'm not a Mormom), they were very helpful and I found my Great Grandfather on the second visit. I will admit, I haven't done anything for awhile, but, want to get back to it this fall.
