My newest hobby...making my family tree. It is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. I've got so many lines; Culps, Leighs, TenEycks. I'm stuck trying to find my next line in the Gallaway family.
I want to find stories about the family. Has any been in the Civil War, Revolutionary War, War of 1812, backyard scrimish between friends. Anythng besides dates.
I may branch out and find info on their siblings families instead of just doing my direct line-parent to child.
Anyone have any tips and tactics on how to find people, please let me know. I'm checking census records, some death records. Sometimes I only have half the info I need to request a record.
Isn't that a catch-22? You need info, but to get the info, you need info to request the info. Duh!
I've got a headache.
