My mom volunteered at the library in going through old newspapers (mico film) and recording the obituaries for someone else's future research. That's a neat way to get involved with genealogy.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Sandy, that is where I have been going since I can get to it from here, but they did some kind of agreement with ancestry and when I try to open a photo of the marriage certificate and some of the other things it comes up that I have to have an ancestry membership. Some of the census will come up (maybe most), but everything else it says I have to get the ancestry membership to see it.

It does connect to Utah. They had my grandfather's name spelled several ways but correctly for a while, but now have it right. I don't know about the greatgrandmother I was looking at. It was through that site, though, but to look at anything now it goes to ancestry so I couldn't see the marriage license. The only way to get to ancestry is to go down to the library (either that one or our main public library downtown).

I try to prove as I go. If I find something that looks good, but I'm mot sure of I save it and if I find something else on that person it often will prove it right or wrong. But even so sometimes further down three I find that things don't make sense and have to go back and redo part of the tree.

Is this the one in Utah? I tried to get information on my family and they had my family information wrong and refused to correct it.=/

The family search library in Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is one place I have been, but never remember when they are open. I couldn't think of the proper name of the church. They even can send information to your computer, but my computer didn't accept it. I only had something like 15 minutes there.

I don't go onto anyone's tree. I just plug away with information I can get from them then work on verifying it. Also have some from Family Search. Our library has this information and also has the world subscription - all of us have Ancestors from other countries!

I've also received e-mail information from google.com. One was a family history of many pages, a great Aunt wrote in long hand and someone posted it.

I belong to a Genealogy Club in my AZ community. They do NOT like ancestry because of the wrong data the members send. They prefer sending written requests of the data needed to the County Office that retain it's records and history. I seldom do this as it is time consuming and I prefer what I can find on my computer.

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I add them at the same time new person along with the source

Darlene family history library's in most church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and you don't need to be a member of the church. It's free as well! Just a suggestion.

Darlene, absolutely no reason for you to leave the team. We have no requirements here.

Have you checked with the libraries near you to see if they have Ancestry that library card holders can use? Many public libraries do.

There are also many sources than Ancestry available. Have you checked out Family Search?

I have put them down first and then verified. Since I mainly just use a notebook it doesn't mess up anyone's trees. Unless maybe the one on Family Tree. I had seen one last name for my ggrandmother on most items trying to verify and just recently saw something on the marriage information that had a different woman's last name. Nothing I have found has an actual photo of anything unless I get an ancestry membership, which I cannot afford, so I haven't been doing anything lately since I have no way to verify.

I probably should leave the team, but I get information here that will help if I can ever get anywhere that I can verify information.

When I first started my search, and I did not know what I was doing, I relied on other peoples trees as being correct. Thank goodness, I had a distant cousin, that I met through Find A Grave, to give me guidance. Now I am a lot more cautious, and I am in the process of going over all my ancestors to make sure everyone has sources.

Before 1850, I have a more difficult time with this, of course.

I have MacKiev and Ancestry as the first connection on my tree. These are trees from other members and may be copied from each other so it is important to recognize that and decide which is valid and then proof the validity before entering them in my tree.

However, many of the hints are from census, military records, find a grave as a few other valid records and those are what I look for. Even some of those records may have have errors and must be checked.

As I continue on, I have visions of the families - their life styles and habits and the times gone before me...

I like to add the source when adding people.

I have added people I was fairly sure about and then see what Ancestry turned up in their hints to confirm them when I'm not able to find info through the library, courthouse, etc.

If I'm really stuck, I have started a separate tree to see if it connects with mine when I'm unsure of the connection. Then add them if they fit together. That way I'm not putting in info that is incorrect. I worry about others copying my errors. emoticon

Do you “prove” your tree as you add people or do you add them & then go back to find the proof?
