Yes, already the knowledge from the Grand Rapids, Mi Conference is paying off.
This evening I took some information from a couple of talks and applied it to my FTDNA site for family members.
Having found 4, 2nd cousins and 4, 4th cousins I would say that was pretty terrific. Greene Co. PA hello again.
I also applied these thought processes to my JONES files and found two links to the lineage and wrote to them. It is nice when things come together.
Sure the event was not near home but it was great to introduce my daughter in law to a Conference and to learn and listen to the other side of the world on how they relate to research.
Some time back a distant cousin shared a talk with me and I noticed it was different. I am so thankful having had the chance to go to Grand Rapids and meet a couple cousins, Hug a few cousins we already knew of and learn so much great new concepts for research.
The pity is being west with heritage from the east it is a different ball game. If you have west heritage then your research base is already here and built for you. You just may not know it.
Tomorrow evening we meet at the Lemon Grove Library and I will be sharing more of these methods of though we were exposed to.
6 to 7:50 pm..
