WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?

Once you have read this blog post, you really shouldn't have any reason NOT to dig into your family roots.

NOT EXPENSIVE!
#1~ Join a Genealogical Society
(Still have to do this one myself)

#2Check out the local public / university Libraries.
(The local Library is where I got started. Go to the Genealogy section , just look around , up and down the rows of books. Check out the computer stations~which most will have a FREE hook up to ANCESTRY.COM )

#3 Check out the LDS Family History Libraries.
(find on close by from the FAMILY.ORG site.

#4 CYNDISLIST is one of the best sites out there for resourses and links of all kinds. I do believe that almost EVER person out there doing genealogy has used this site as a starting point and still with her today!

Most of the online reasearch is free, so you can get pretty deep into your family roots and not spending a penny !

NOT TIME CONSUMING!
#1 the time factor~WHY? Start with one person and go from there. I started with my dad at the time of his death back in Dec. 2005. and have gone back about 12 generations just the SARGENT pedigree.

#2 Don't bite off more than you can chew~take small bite size portions. Everyone starts with the "spoon size" method. Just take is slow. As you grow and hunger more , the wanting will come around.

HOW TO Share your ANCESTRY tree with others

I got an email from a distant cousin (Susan of the HEACOCK line) the other day asking how I got others on my tree as guest, contributors and editors...so maybe there are others out there who want to know as well.

Most of my list is of those connected to my tree which I have found or they found me through the member connections. Most will be Guest and few are the Contributors..all of which I have them NOT seeing the live people on my tree, but can access the info I do have on my ancestors.

1. sign on to ancestry dot com, go to the tree you want to add someone to as an invitee. On the right hand side just under the "search window to find person in this tree" there should be a link "invite family members". Click on this link , takes you to ....

2. If you already have invitees the page will be "manage your invites" ..... look for the button (should be on right hand side) with a +sign "invite people". Again, click this.....

3. You will need the person's name and email. EXAMPLE~ I place in ( ) the family name they connect with me just after their name. It helps me to know where they are in my own family branches. Such as the above named distant cousin Susan, I have the (HEACOCK) after her name . This is the branch that we connect with in our trees.

4 IMPORTANT~ make sure you check which role you are giving them, Guest and Contributor are the best , unless you allow them to edit...then they will be able to undo (even by accident) any work you have done. Also make sure , if for just privacy, the box for seeing live people on your tree is NOT checked.

*The editor role is allowed to see the living by default...so do have caution on this.

5. Feel free to add a short note in the notation box. When I invite someone I let them know where I found them..on the member connect or even face book (which is where afew , hopefully all will end up at ).

Once you have done all this , chick on the send button and sit back and wait...you should get an email once that person has excepted your invite.

Hope this helps in the way of sharing our family branches with others out there.
