Today I am suggesting you follow Ancestry.com, I have been been lucky enough to find great family photo's and finding lost relatives which I now have a great relationship with. Not to mention all the documents and family trees they have.
I have also ordered books and programs from their web site and I read all the information in the learning center they have on genealogy.
The pictures I posted on Thursday came from this web site and some of the information I gathered. I also use the Family Tree Maker program for my genealogy which I love. I have tried several other ones and they just don't cut it.
I also like that you can research a individual in your tree to a link that Family Tree Maker has attached to the program, very convenient. I also have downloaded my tree to their site for others to look at that maybe researching the same lines as I am.
If your a member you also get a inbox for people to leave messages and for you to leave messages for others.They have message boards too so if there's a certain line you are working on and are stuck you can post a message about the problem your having and hopefully some nice folks will help you out.
Another thing I like about their program is that I can manage many different trees. I have my own genealogy business and Trace peoples family history for them and put it into a spiral bond book. This program helps me do that and sights all my sources and media.
I hope this has been helpful for those not as familiar with Ancestry.com and hope you get a membership and try it out, you will be amazed in your journey as your family history comes alive before your very eyes. Until next time God Blessings to you all.
