I've been working on my family Genealogy. I have done this for ten years now but never mentioned it here. Does anyone use Ancestry.com as I do? I've done family trees for a few friends now too. LOVE how Ancestry provides all the hints -- makes it easier than years ago. However, you DO have to look closely at everything.
I'm doing something odd on Ancestry (sounds about right for me, doing something weird again :).
I am starting with DNA matches on my mothers side and working on their trees, hoping (in time) that I will figure out where we fit in. Working with Polish surnames with many spellings leads to many walls so I am hoping my reverse logic works!
So tell me about your Genealogy efforts.
Do you use Ancestry.com?
Do you use another site?
Do you do searches the old way with paperwork and old, but trusty, methods?
Have you found significant family finds with your searches?
