All Done?

Have you ever said or heard someone say "My family history is all done" Or do you think that since Aunt Ida or Uncle Bill is doing I don't have to worry about getting involved in genealogy work.

Everyone needs to be personally involved in family history so our hearts will be turned to our fathers.

Everyone of us has 2 parents, 4 grandparents and that doubles each generation. In only 10 generations we have 512 grandparents, in 16 generations we have nearly 33,000 direct ancestors. Now if you add in their children, spouses, and their children you possibly could have millions of ancestors.

So when you think that you are "All Done" think again.

For help on getting started with your family history or if you need a little assistance getting over that one hurdle that has you stumped give one of our ward family history consultants a call. They aren't experts by a long shot but they may have ideas on how to procede that you haven't thought about.
