Any suggestion on where to start with researching a family tree? Looking on line, it is a bit
It can be a bit daunting, but a good start is to set up a free account at http://wikitree.com
Once activated, just start adding your immediate family members, using as much verifiable information as you can about them.
If you enter a name, you may see a similar name pop up. If it refers to the same
person you wanted to enter, that means they are already in the database, and you would
then accept that name as someone in your tree. That would be a good thing, since they
already have verifiable information about themselves, hopefully with other family
members already entered.
We live on a global planet. We are all related to pretty much everyone else in some way.
WikiTree helps us see those relationships.
On Fridays, I receive an email from WikiTree with cousins around the world they have
found, and I post those relationships that WikiTree has found for me. The same would
eventually happen to you, if you provide enough info about your family members.
