Genealogy Do-Over Begins

For well over a year I have been intending to restart my genealogy work—by which I mean start over at the beginning. But one delay after another has kept this from happening.

Today I have published online a skeleton family tree, basically it consists of myself, my siblings, and my husband. On his side, I include his grandparents and their parents—he remembers several of his great grandparents. On my side, I have included my ancestors for about five generations back.

Over the next few weeks or months, I will add documentation to support every statement or implication in the tree. I will first do what I can from the censuses, and also create a spreadsheet of the individuals and the census which they appear in, along with the household information.

It is fun to have finally gotten this part of the project underway.
