My latest statistic – five thousand seven hundred, 5700, ancestors on my family tree and still counting on June 2 2017.
I keep finding more ancestors to add to my tree. Ancestry.com keeps growing and various other genealogy resources are being revealed. The digital age!
More specifically I’m trying to be sure I have identified all the ancestors who emigrated to North America. But this work results in pursuing many other ancestors and their stories as well. The pursuit of knowledge!
A gold mine of information
4 more books I might acquire – when I was visiting the East Coast last week, my cousin and I shared some of our research and these books are part of her library. She is deep into genealogy research and far more trained than I am. She volunteers at the New England Genealogical Research Institute once a week. We spent a bit of time exchanging and sharing information but other activities intervened and called upon our time. A return visit when we might have more time to focus on our shared genealogy interests is called for – maybe a visit to the Saugus Ironworks and the Peabody Essex Museum.
