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.
Thanks for visiting!! Genealogy takes a lot of time and patience. Gather up your family stories, talk with your relatives to add to those stories, gather pictures and go back through old family photo albums, then order birth and death certificates perhaps on vitalchek.com, and marriage licenses, visit your archives or courthouses for related documents; census images will give you names and ages, there ya go, put the pieces together, step by step, and you have a decent family tree with much verification.
My folks were mixed native americans and I am finding many indian names in the branches I am researching and some applications to the Indian Rolls of Oklahoma of various relatives, which add more clues to our family history.
