Today, I decided to start fresh with my family tree and create a new one that contains only sourced records. I’ve got a tree that I’ve been building over the past 20 years that has over 1000 people in it. Big deal, because it is filled with the early mistakes that any newbie family tree researcher makes which is to merge trees from other researchers without regard for accuracy.
With that, I’ve created a new tree in my genealogy software and I’ll be adding people slowly and deliberately, citing sources along the way as I pull the information from the old tree.
I’ve also purchased a license of Reunion 9 for the Mac (I’ve switched to a Mac since I’ve been working on my tree in earnest). It figures, because Ancestry.com just announced FTM for the Mac after all these years.
Literally decades have passed without FTM on the Mac. I purchase software and merely hours later, Ancestry makes that announcement. The story of my life.
That’s ok, as a Mac user I’m used to spending lots of money.
