Welcome to the site Mike. I've been here for over a year but have had alot of health issues so am just holding my own right now with the weight issue. I've been doing genealogy for almost 40 years nad have had alot of fun meeting new people, digging in the books at court houses, "visiting" the cemeteries and seeing lots of God's beautiful world.
Check out Geni (it's free) www.geni.com and set up your own family tree, invite other family to join you, then they will do the same and watch it grow. I started mine Nov 24 08 and already have 1,814 people on my tree and alot of that was entered as people kept inviting people so we got alot of information we probably wouldn't have had if not for others who shared ~ and the pictures are Marvelous as we all share what we have in our albums !!! They recently added quite a few features where it will match you with others who have entered info on someone (much like Ancestry and their leaves) so hope you will check it out.
Enjoy SP as you get healthy and don't be afraid to ask for help ~ lots of people will help you if you need it :) BTW, I'm originally from Columbus, OH but now live in the DFW area of TX ..... BUT, my husband has now agreed to move to OH, we just don't know when with the way the economy is going so time will tell ~ I'm a Buckeye always :)

I have been with spark for a month and half. I have been doing genealogy for over 30 years. I had success in both in the weight loss and genealogy. Mike
