Keeping Up With Pedigree Changes

I work with the New Family Search program which shares information with others and they can change and add to your pedigree.  At first I was very perturbed (that word probably dates me), then I understood the dynamics of the process and how it actually related to real life and personal perceptions of a family. Now I actually am enjoying the working together and how it widens your knowledge.

I made the picture above to demonstrate how my perceptions of this family has grown as others have shared their information with me otherwise, I would have been stuck, as I really am on some of this family, seeing them as youth never grown up.  I love finding out what happened to the members of the family.  Where they went, if they had children and what life held for them.  It is a wonderful adventure.

  1. I am not at home but using a public computer. Your background, and mine as well is not showing up at all. Unfortunately your letters are yellow on a white background and I can't read them at all. They are fine when I am on my computer at home using Firefox. I wonder how many others may not be able to read your words.
    The family photo has me intrigued.
