Keeping Track September 2, 2017

In my genealogy work I’m trying to identify as many ancestors as possible.  My tree keeps growing.  As part of this work I want to be sure I identify all the individuals  who immigrated to America.

The ancestor count as of September 1, 2017 stands at 6476.  That’s a lot of people.

Here is one of the immigrant ships

Immigrant ship 33
