I am a retired person on disability and just began working on my family genealogy about May, 2012. It's a gas! -- am really enjoying myself, The process is fun, exciting, and challenging. It can be rewarding and frustrating at the same time.
There are SO many resources and so LITTLE time. It's amazing how time flies when tracking down a clue. How I wish I could apply my former occupation's [computer skills to tweak sites and search engines so they would work better IMHO, of course!
Am so sorry, but my disabilities now prevent me from being able to volunteer to take grave photos or go and research actual paper records at local sites. Still am willing to share any data that I've found with any of my 'cousins' out there. Or do some research by phone at local places that might be long-distance to you.
A tip: Try using Wikipedia or even Google to look up a 'historical' relative. You'd be surprised what you might find...a biography, or a reference to a book in which your relative might be mentioned, or even a Surname-themed website maintained by relatives.
You are free to use anything I post to this site for your own personal family history research but may not do so for any commercial purpose without prior written permission. Thank you.
Good luck in your ancestry quests!
