Do you ever do lineage research?

Posted by   + Show Post

 My aunt is going to present all her lineage research she has done on our family over the past 2 years this summer when we have a big family gathering.

I have seen those ads and commercials for that ancestry site and such, but never really paid it much attention. I know our history back to my great great grandparents, but I think it is pretty neat to learn about everything else she has unearthed.

Do you/have you or anyone you know done any lineage research on your family?

Where you surprised by what you learned?

What was your experience with it?

We don't know yet. She is being very quiet about everything, that is why she is going to make it all a presentation like thing. We are all pretty excited about it.

Quoting oredeb:
