Today, this message (left) came with some hints—“hints” for my family tree. With my Ancestry.com searches, why haven’t they found the Tiner and Harris great-grandfather? See the 1633 number (above)? True story: Perhaps five-hundred individuals are related to Mr. and Mrs. Tiner. The other eleven-hundred are the additional individuals researched (and documented) while searching for the ancestors.
“One track mind”? Yes, I’m almost always (figuratively) “climbing the family tree.”
The Hummingbird feeders were empty. I’m in the process of making a double batch of nectar. Since the twelfth, I’ve filled feeders a couple of times!! Perhaps too few flowering plants for Hummingbirds to feed upon? In Livingston, Texas (and North Carolina), I had flowering plants specifically for Hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. The rose bushes in my yard (Waco) obviously do not provide nectar.
Here is a link to my previous milestone regarding individuals in my Ancestry database. ~~ Documenting “my family”—and collateral lines—is easy because the individuals are well documented. I “hit a brick wall” while documenting the ancestors of my RV Park owner-manager, and his wife. I did exhaustive searches and cannot get past their great-grandparents.
Because it was cold outdoors—and indoors—I’ve spent hours at the computer near a space heater!!
While watching–and listening–to TV Church, I was sorting family history paperwork—and other “paper stuff.” I came across a story that I believe needed to be copied to the Internet. Here is a link to the story in my Ancestry.com database: Supercentenarian celebrates her 111th birthday. Hopefully, the reader can access the story because I can’t test the link. (Ancestry recognizes me.) *
Here is a picture of “family history paperwork” that is more than three decades old. One… is dated 19 February 1987. All will go into the trash bin because it has no value. The information is well-documented in my Ancestry.com database.
Several days ago, I created this image (left) from an accurate image of careless documentation by a subscriber to Ancestry.com. I attached it to the individual hoping to encourage subscribers (readers) to double-check their records. To my chagrin, today I saw that I had a similar error in my tree.
Years ago, I earned my living as a “proofreader.” Errors have a way of “popping off the page” to me. Furthermore, I check and double-check each person before I move to siblings or parents. According to comments I attached to Phoebe Gaffield Watson, it has been five years since I last documented this family. Five years with this gross error. Shame, shame, Lorraine!!
