Finding ANCESTORS

Lately I've been focused on doing genealogical research on some brick walls in my ancestry-see medium mauve areas above top right that are blank. Branches of my family tree or pedigree where I've been stopped for decades. Realizing with the passage of time, more than five decades I've been searching for my family that now there is more available on the Internet. I posted these photos on FIND A GRAVE that I got from a professional researcher I hired years ago in Williams County, Ohio. Check out this free helpful website for deaths in United States. Not all graves are there, but many are and it can be very helpful in tracing your family tree. I'm also teaching people how to make fan charts...click on chart above to see my nine generations of ancestors, some lines continue on back.

Now that all of the programs are restored on our new computer, tom has been spending time on genealogy again too. He also has some brick walls.
