I have been working on my Family Tree for over 20 years, slowly at first, but increasingly as the passion has grown.
I am committed to being as accurate as possible, so I do not enter anything without supporting documentation which means hours and hours of research and then entering things either manually or scanning them to my computer. My family tree now has over 67,000 persons with over 18,450 media items as of 03/06/21. This does not include birth, wedding announcements, & obituaries which are typed in separately under "Notes."
I am luckier than most in that both my maternal and paternal ancestors stayed almost entirely in the Niagara/Orleans County area of New York State.
I am more than willing to help others with volunteer photos in my area of Southwest Florida because I've received some beautiful photos from volunteers in the areas surrounding my hometown of North Tonawanda, N.Y. Thank you, one and all, for your support and friendship.
