More wandering in the halls of time --

Well, I was going to write about bird poop today :) but I got stuck wandering around in again today.  It's a giant sinkhole of time, and today I sucked Grace into it and she got hooked, too.

My son's great-great-great-great grandfather.

We sat together, following path after path in both our trees (she's my stepdaughter, so they're different) and in a very short time, she was hooked.  We got so excited when we actually found a relative who served in the Revolutionary War, and then followed that back into the 1600's, but sadly realized at some point that we were barking up the wrong family tree -- she was only related to that person by marriage, not blood.  :(

 The house of my husband's great-great-great grandfather, George Bates.

We're having a blast.  I'll be happy when this two weeks is over and I can switch over to the German site and find something about my family.  I swear I'm going to take a break from it tomorrow, but . . . we'll see.

I promise I will write about the bird poop tomorrow or the next day -- cross my heart and hope to die.


SquirrelQueen said... is highly addictive and can eat up great chunks of time, it's like reading a mystery novel. I am been using it for almost ten years to track both mine and my husband's family trees. It is easy to get off on a wrong branch but sometimes it can be entertaining to do that.
Good luck with your searches.
