About Me.

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'.
Enjoy!

FamilySearch Apps

I've been spending time browsing around in FamilySearch,    https//familysearch.org    and found this section.  The Apps are divided into five different groups; Find Ancestors (36), Family tree software (27), Photos and Stories (45), Charts and Tree Views (27) and Tree analysing (33). Number in brackets are how many in each group.

They are for both android and ios, with  a brief description of each one. I looked at some interesting podcasts, that I'll consider downloading.

If using your iPad or Tablet is how you do your family research, have a look.

Blogs

How many of us read other peoples blogs? I have several that I read and find that they are a wonderful way to get to know others.  The blog I'm going to review here is from FamilySearch.

Now before you go, "not them, Again!" When was the last time you really had a good 'play' on their site? It is free and very useful. Go on, have a look.

FamilySearch Blog is like most blogs, with frequent posts and what I like about it is that you don't have to scroll through every blog to find the one that you want to visit, again.   there are 18 different categories for you to read. I like going into What's New at FamilySearch and Tech Tips. These help me know what is new and solve any small problems I might have with searching.

So go and read a different blog and enjoy.

Tips for Writing Your Story

http://www.angielucas.com/yeahwrite/2015/06/5-writing-tips-interesting-personal-stories.html

I found this link on the FamilySearch Facebook page and thought that it was interesting. While the tips relate to scrapbooking, they are useful for story writing too.

  I know I need to really get into writing up what I know about various family members but I keep doing other things instead.

Bye for now,
Lilian.
