I love genealogy. I have done major research on my ancestors. Some of the information that I have found is simply amazing, like one my ancestors was named in the Salem Witch Trials. Once you start researching, it becomes an addiction for more information.
I drew a massive family tree for the annual reunion. The drawing took up the side of the garage, but it was awesome and completely worth the time and effort. I plan to catergorize everything and put the information into a history book. I have collected pictures (old tin types) and documents to use.
My grandfather kept a journal for the time he was in WWI, so I am going to include all that information. I also have poetry that he wrote.
I have also gotten a lot of information from various relatives to include in the book. And, I have also hit a lot of road blocks. There's some of the "branches" in the family that just seem to have vanished. But, I will continue to research.
