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.
I only started to build a family tree about 18 months ago after the death of my mother-in-law. As my husband and I are both only children, and she had been our last surviving parent, I realised how little we knew of our descendants and how few older relatives we had left to learn from. With adult children & grand-children, who would never know about their heritage, I decided to trace all our 'roots' to give them some insight into their ancestors.
