Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to try out MyHeritage.com.  MyHeritage has been around for a few years now.  Their primary product has been family trees and they have specialized in helping families work together.

I published this article a few years ago, but recently I have received some questions about it again so I thought I would re-print the article.  If you have information that shows your line traced back to Adam, I don’t mean to offend you.  I only hope to dispel the misinformation that exists on this topic.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.  In genealogy, a picture can be worth many hours of research.  Seeing your research in new ways can help you to detect errors, see patterns, and identify new opportunities for research.

This last week my mother-in-law passed away.  She was like a second mother to me.  I will miss her tremendously.  We lived next door to her for nearly ten years.  She was my wife’s best friend.

As I thought about her  this week I considered the impact she has had on her family.  Verlene taught her children about the most important things in life.  She was not a genealogist, but rather was a family historian.  She shared stories of her ancestors that taught her children the most important lessons in life.

Have you ever gotten stuck while doing family history and wished that you had a personal trainer to help you and teach you how to do research the way the professionals do? If so, you are in good company. Everyone comes upon a problem they don’t know how to solve at some point.

Julie Miller, a genealogist with whom I have worked over the past few years writes a column for The Broomfield Enterprise.  She recently wrote and article which started me thinking.  Her article focused on the fact that while the Internet is a great resource, not everything can be found online.

Over the years I have been doing family history I have occasionally heard someone claim they have their line traced back to Adam.  I have from a researcher hired by my grandma, a record which shows my Mecham line traced back to Adam.  Unfortunately, these claims are fantasy.
