A very cool thing happened today. I've spent the last year and a half or so tracing my family history. I came across the fact that the older brother of my Great Grandfather was born in New York USA as a British subject. Next I see this guy is 5 yrs old living with his uncle back in England.
So life goes on.
I had posted a request for info on a site last year. A couple of weeks ago I got an e-mail from the Great Grandson of this Great GrandUncle of mine.
So today I get 3 e-mails from him that are copies of photos of my relatives from the early 1900's.
I've seen pictures on my Grandparents but never anything older.
Gotta love the internet.

I started tracing my family tree.

Found out the canopy is covered in bag worms and the root are all ate up by borers.

Seems I am one of the few decent ones in it.

I found a distant cousin on Facebook a few weeks ago. Was interesting.

I have one branch of my family trace back to the 1600's so far.

I did sign up on Ancestry.com on a monthly basis for the English side of my family.
For the Scottish side I used scotlandspeople.gov.uk. With this site I was able to get copies of documents going back to 1688. I also used the Mormon website "Family search". That is a good one and it's free. The information isn't always the most accurate, but it does help get you going and can sometimes confirm suspicions.

It's not always good news when you start searching. At least you find out what kind of tree it is. Looking like a nut tree for me.
