Yesterday, I spent an entire day documenting one family. If the reader is interested, click on this link and read about my cousin “Nettie.” I have a number of “black sheep” in my family tree and I see Nettie as one of the worst.
I titled this message “collaboration” because (at this hour) four genealogists are involved. First, a cousin sent the obituary for one of Nettie’s grandchildren. I expanded on the information; I documented the ancestry. Questions prompted me to dig for more information—including a search on the Internet. At the end of the day, I shared my research with genealogists (cousins) who might be interested. Two responded… and one sent the attached newspaper clipping.
