#24. Keep Family Tree Up-To-Date

Maintaining the Family Tree is extremely important to me, I only know who I am and where I personally come from. But when it comes to the bigger picture I know absolutely nothing. I decided a few years ago that I’d start a tree on Ancestry.com in hopes of finding out more about my family as well as extended members. I also hoped for more involvement or input from other members. But, I started this project and I should own up to it.

Fortunately for me, my current job affords me the opportunity to verify certain information from records that directly influences my tree. Unfortunately, I have found discrepancies that make this project’s maintenance a little more difficult. I knew this wasn’t going to be easy and I look forward to the many challenges and changes as our family continues to grow.

I don’t know much about where I come from and may not know where we are going, but I am thankful to be apart of it. I encourage you to take a look at the bigger picture of you and your family, you never know what you’ll learn.
