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.

About Our Family Research
I am just getting started researching my mothers and fathers roots. I have traced my mothers back to Frankstate Mahren Austria, in 1851 coming to America in 1885 and Longendorf, Austria, in 1850 coming to America in 1878. On my fathers side I haven't had as much luck. I have traced back to Trebanz, Austria, and Johndorf, Austria, coming to America in 1875.
