Expanding our research is one of the ways we can find information to help us ready our goal in the process.
I attend Webinars frequently especially those that are presented or have Genea-Bloggers presenting about the topic of Genealogy. You never know what you might find while attending a webinar.
This evening I attended “DearMYRTLE’s A FEW GOOD SITES Workshop Webinar”. She was showing the participants various websites where we can do research.
She showed about 70 listeners a number of websites that she uses to pint out what you might find on each.
When Ancestry.com was brought up, she shared no only what you might find on this website, but then she opened up her Ancestry Member Tree. Please understand that she and I already have hints that we are related but haven’t spent a lot of time talking about it. We have done shared Webinars and other presentations, online, but her example, right there online, in the Webinar, the exact family line that I had been working on, figuring out relationships, the previous night. Just on her screen, in the webinar, were probably 10 of the same names that I was working on.
As she was presenting, I emailed her several pictures of the Church where that group of people attended.
We will continue to put the pieces together and it may be that in her records, SHE holds the key to help me reach the secondary goal of finding out who David Ridgely Howards grandfather was. I think his name was on that screen that she shared.
