I have been researching families since 1980.And enjoying it very much.All I could do was to ask living relatives information writing to churches, city clerks every place I could think of. I never got a computer til 2005.
Being in Utah I even got a chance to visit the FAMILY HISTORY CENTER in SLC. What a thrill that was. Just about every town,city have a church (Ward)that has an area where you can visit and they have experts who help you to do your research and teach you. Even use their computers.
About a year ago I found FAG but just started using it about 2 months ago, of course making errors learning how to correct them with help from some wonderful people still learning every day.
I have been searching my families Couture,dubois,Wood,Pollett,Tingman my husband's families Egan,Kotschenreuther, Thuss, Billing.
