Welcome to my genealogy blog. Follow me on my journey to find ancestors and the documents they left behind to be discovered.

It has been six weeks since my last post. Why? We bought a house and moved. It's always a new adventure to move into a new-to-me home. This one was built before 1960 so there are no grounded plugins anywhere. Using three-prong adapter for the time being.
Anyway, I have had a MyFamily website since they created them many years ago. I liked this way of sharing my research with family members. Ancestry.com has decided to "retire" this product so I requested a download of all of my photos that were shared over the years. I sent an email to the members of the site I set up to let them know if they want any of the photos that were shared, to log in and get them download ASAP. I have downloaded the photos and renamed them since the zipped folder just had numbers, nothing posted was included in the download. This is disappointing and the iCalendar won't open with Outlook either. I don't know what platform they used to create it. The site goes dark in September. Needless to say, I am disappointed.
I don't like the idea of a publicly shared family tree. It's not that I own my ancestors, it's that I want to protect the integrity of my research and don't anyone copying content.
Now that things are finally settling down, I will be back posting on my blog soon!
