I've just spent a lovely hour chatting with friends on Google Hangout. Tonight we focused on the positives we had in the past year, relating to out genealogical research. Several people said that they had broken theirs or other peoples "brick walls" down. That is always a great thing. I had success with finding the birth of my Great-Grandfather, in Germany. I used Family Search for this and once I had found him, I went to my local LDS Family History Centre and was able to order the film it was on.
For those who haven't looked at Family Search, try it. There is so much on their site that I could easily spend hours just going through each section.
A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
