Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
It's actually quite easy to get started, and you'll be surprised
at what kind of great family legends come up when you just ask.
To get rolling, use our form to ask
family members a few basic questions.
Where's the best place to start? With yourself of course! Then
move on to your parents or other close relatives. Don't be shy about
asking questions. Most people will be flattered that you are interested
and will enjoy sharing stories about themselves.
Family get-togethers, weddings, and reunions are great places to
gather interesting and sometimes humorous information about your
family. You can also just pick up the phone and make a quick call.
