Family Found

This is an amazing way to learn about your ancestors and yourself. The first time I used the tree maker I was able to see my family history and find people that I never knew about. Pioneers,leaders, and other family members who were able to make a difference to the people around them. It has given me inspiration and pride for all the family that has gone before me. My husband and I are working together on our family history and he has shown me how to look for information. The tools provided by Family tree are easy to use and research is becoming easier. My dad did family history and back then it was a lot more difficult. He left me a treasure trove of information and family pictures that I have been blessed to have! They make it so much easier to connect with my family stories! It’s great to see the faces and see the pictures of their lives. The LDS is an excellent source for information. I have been so impressed how they have tried to keep records for future generations. Hopefully someday my grandchildren will be interested in the family history and work we have done with Family Search will be of benefit for them. I have gotten a lot of joy from learning about my family history and still have a long way to go. What an adventure it will be!

Improve! Improve! Improve!

The app is great but it could be even better. There are few records of my family so I have to add everything myself. This is not a problem but there are a few problems that can improve the app.
1. I would really like to keep my family tree so no one can see it and I really want to have complete access to everything including changing the status of a deceased person to living. Well if it’s my family tree then I have the right to do whatever I want with it.
2. There are many information you can add to a person. This part includes many useless things but not the most useful thing, Cause of Death. I really wanted to add the cause of death of my ancestors but I was forced to add a note and then write the cause of death there. I would really appreciate it if you add this option to “Add Information”. You can also add an option to add diseases so we can tract genetic diseases through our ancestors.
3. Enable an option where you can add a sibling with an unknown parent. So for example, I know my 2nd great grandmother’s sister but not the name of my 3rd great grandfather or 3rd great grandmother so I’m unable to add any siblings to my 2nd great grandmother.

Impressive archive

I have been collecting family tree information since 1974 but for past 20 years had taken a break and the past month refocused on completing and publishing family tree. During my hiatus the Internet happened and Family Tree leverages the new technology. After 15 minutes on the site was astonished by how comprehensive, accurate and complete the archive was. In fact on one side of family went back one generation further than I had completed. I am excited and looking forward to posting pictures of family members generation back that have been entrusted to me by my grandparents and parents. This is the archive I want to invest time to update for future generations. I have a wealth of information to share, that includes pictures, stories and historical information for my ancestors. I have invested Hundreds of hours and many trips around the USA compiling, picture taking and documenting my family’s history. Hoping the archive allows for including some additional family details.
