My WikiTree

I've been slowly putting my file on WikiTree.  Not as a GEDCOM but one individual at a time.  I can fill in the things I have but have not charted and recheck things as I go.  My file and my WikiTree are being sync-ed up as I go.  I love that I can add just about anything to my pages, and present the facts as I like.  I find them easy on the eye and very easy to put together.

My grandmother, Bizzie Lee Beard Brock has a page that I will eventually add memories to under the bio area.  My hope is that people that knew her will add their memories and information as well.  Those that have her in their tree, but did not know her, will get a clear picture of who she was and be able to add sources to their file or her page.  I can also add the name of the person who shared the information with me.

Here at TwigTalk I hope to get back to blogging about my research again.  I need an interest to get absorbed into. One of the things I have been doing is putting my 4 files together into one big one.  I read an article some time back about cross-overs
and duplicates being easier to deal with.  I wish I could remember the name of the blogger that wrote it. I think it is a good idea although I do seem to be moving slowly.  I want to be sure not to make any mistakes.


A Short Break

I have stayed busy, just not as genealogically busy as normal. I did remove my DNA kit from FamilyTreeDNA. I had read all the TOS and Privac...
