Well, Happy New Year. Yes, in March. Don't know what that means?
For the past week, I have been a "guide on the side" for my long time friend who decided to start working on her family history along with a couple of family members. Being an experienced tech person and writer, she also has a Ph.D. in a science area. It is amazing how much she had accomplished, with the genealogical proof satnadards and proper citation in ONE WEEK!
She has discovered that he surname is French not English and that her Irish and Portugese side is much harder to trace. As I continue to explore her tree and give ideas, I am thrilled to report that the Internet is really motivating her to keep going.
Makes one want to start a fresh clean new tree all over again!
