Starting Sept. 30, 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.
I have decided that my family is too interesting not to be remembered. From what I can tell, only my Aunt Helen Gaensslen, not a blood relative and with no siblings and children herself, paid very close attention to the family tree. I want to find out all I can about the backgrounds of both of my parents, all their relatives and ancestors, and about the places they have lived, the things they have done, the lives they have led. I hope that once I get going on this, other relatives will add information and we can all share it and enjoy it together.
