Climbing the family tree
Have you ever thought about climbing the family tree and seeing where the long extended branches lead you?
I have often wanted to see how far and wide my family branches extended but never really took the time and effort to do the research.
It would probably take the help of several family members to gather the names, birth dates, locations etc.
Tracing where my great grandma’s parents came from and theirs etc. would be like watching a show on the History Channel.
Most of us never get the chance to meet our great grand parents, and some haven’t even met their grand parents. I am one of the few that didn’t get to meet my grand parents on my father’s side. I know my grandma on my mom’s side of the family, so tracing my family tree branches would be a nice way to get to know something about my family history.
I find it odd how at one point in our life things don’t seem so important then a year or so later, you find yourself needing to know/wanting to know things. I guess I am at a point in my life where I want to know the where’s/when’s etc.
Have you traced your family tree branches? If you haven’t yet is it something you’ve thought about doing?
