Yesterday, Ancestry.com sent an email with link to DNA “distant cousin.” I checked the relationship and (silently) had a temper tantrum!!! WRONG, WRONG, WRONG information. So I sent a polite, personable, thoughtful, considerate email message to the cousin and suggested s/he check my publication titled Frantz Families–Kith & Kin (free on the Internet). I’ve spent two days correctly building the family members around “cousin.”
Remember when the telephone company had ads about “let your fingers do the walking”? For two days, my fingers did the walking and we traveled to Indiana. Most of the time, I was “visiting” with a family with the surname “Clodfelter.” Forty-seven men and women with that surname plus spouses with variety of surnames. The “sources” are available on Ancestry.com. Individuals should check for sources and not copy from another Ancestry member family tree.
Two days, few meals, too many snacks… “Bad girl, bad girl!!” The pain has returned to arm, neck and shoulders. Today, the sun came out and the day was beautiful. A lot of things could have been accomplished if I’d spent time in the yard.
