My family research to date and my future plans

Wow!!! just had a look at the number of individuals in my tree and I have over 1,300 names in there. I have to say that when I started this hobby, I had no idea that I would get so hooked or that I would make so many friends along the way, not to mention get to know some cousins all over the world.

The furthest back my research goes so far is abt 1650 on one of the lines.

I'm now trying to flesh it out a bit and see where it leads. What I would also love to do is to look at the history of the places where my relatives were living throughout their lives and see how it affected them - whether something caused them to come to the decision to emigrate or if it was just something they decided to do, i.e. the Highland Clearances - did it affect any of my family?

Another project I'm hoping to do at some time in the future is something more of a research tool for others - I'd love to look at all the families that have been mentioned in my tree and follow all the lines to see where they lead. I've discovered in several places that cousins are married, sometimes several generations down the line - possibly without even knowing they were related so I'm hoping that this is true further back in the relevant families too (I'm taking my inspiration from the Royal Families of Europe whose bloodlines are so intertwined - if it's good enough for the Kings, Queens, Dukes and Counts of Europe, then it's good enough for the rest of us, huh?)

Any ideas for good sites that will help me in my future plans would be appreciated.

My next immediate plan is that I'm hoping to post an index of my family tree over the next couple of weeks. I have a site on myheritage.com and all my tree information is on there. If, once I have posted the index, you see a name that you recognise, you can contact me and I'll send you an invite to the site so that you can have a further look. Would certainly be a lot easier if this site had a family tree option, but until then, this is the best I can do.

Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to respond to my posts and send me messages re the names I'm researching and I hope that this plan of mine goes some way to repaying that.

Good luck everyone and happy hunting,

Kay

The pitfalls of using Ancestry.com's Ancestral Hints function ....

Just posting this as a word of warning to those of you who use Ancestry.com to research your tree.

I was totally amazed at the amount of connections their Ancestral Hints came up with for my family tree that appeared to be correct (need I say more?)

It began to really get out of hand though, after I started adding these names to my tree. What I didn't realise was that the information being added through the Ancestral Hints function was a mixture of truth and lies. I discovered a whole line of Canadian cousins and thought "Wow". Then I discovered that they weren't really connected. The dates on the information I had added in were wrong - my family line jumped from 1840 to 1764 and then back to 1840 - eek.

I have had to then spend a lot of time going back over the connections and have now learned that there is an option on the comparison page to look at each entry individually and to select the ones that match - something I didn't know at the beginning when I made the huge blunder.

To cut a long story short ... I have gone from having 3,000 people in my family tree back to just over 1,000 and am now double checking everything I find on Ancestry.com. I just don't trust the information they give through the Ancestry Hints any more.

Also, the service used to be free, but when I click on a link to view the information I am being asked to subscribe to Ancestry.com - something that I can't afford to do at the moment (not sure if I really want to either, now)

Probably this was my own stupidity/naivity, whatever, but just thought it was worth passing on my lesson so that you don't fall into the same trap.

Looking for Ancestors of William Henry Carter & Ada Mona E. Page

Hi,

I'm looking for some information and am hoping that someone here has this info in their tree.

My maternal grandparents, William Henry Carter & Ada Mona E. Page, have been my brick wall since I started researching my tree 3 years ago.

Finally, last month I managed to crack it a little with the help of some members of a yahoo group I'm subscribing to.

The information that they found for me is as follows:

William Henry Carter & Ada Mona E Page m. St. Ives 1920.
Children: Mary Carter b. 1921, d. 1921
George Carter b. 1921, d. 1921
William Carter, b. 1928
Joyce Carter, b. 1930.

Census from 1901.

1901 census,Page family.

This is what I have researched so far on my Edwards ancestors.

Introducing myself

Hello everyone,

I'm just thought I'd better introduce myself.

My name is Kay and I'm based in Scotland. I happened across this site by accident and thought it looked like a good bet to try to find out some more information about my family.

The names I am researching are Gordon/Middleton/Mollison/Kerr/Mitchell/Edwards/Duncan/Watt, but I'm mainly trying to research the Gordon branch at the moment.

I look forward to getting to know you all through time and hope that your own research is going better than mine, which seems to have stalled.

Regards and best wishes,

Kay, aka Gordy100
