Introduction, I guess!

Hi! I'm fairly newish, and am starting to take more and more interest in genealogy and archiving! I've tried doing what I can with my own family tree, but often find that I've followed the wrong line, got a name wrong, etc, and have to start over. I haven't gotten much information from my own, living family members (for whatever reason, we're all a pretty distance bunch, I guess?), other than vague guesses and such.

I love history, and I find that having a personal link to the past helps one appreciate it more.

Whether it's investigating my own ancestors or helping out with another project, I'm happy to be here and I hope to stay for a long time.

Welcome to the tree Sydney.  There are a lot of good people here that will help where they can and when they can. so if you find you are stumped at a generation, can't find a record, like birth, marriage, death, census, etc, put up the info you have on G2g just as you did here, and add tags, like the last names, place, sources, etc.  this will bring in others working on those name lines and places, and most of the time someone will be able to help find the missing link or infos.

As for the wrong lines.. been there done that over and over again, years and years ago when I first started.  been at it now for 23 years, and the more I find, the more questions I have.  Its a journey that never ends, that I think makes it so much fun and addictive.

Again, Welcome to the tree, and happy hunting!
