Well, I certainly fell behind again, and after working so hard to catch up! While I was at RootsTech I couldn't keep up with my events because Family Tree Maker does such an awful job of searching for dates. I tried downloading Personal Ancestry Writer, a free Macintosh genealogy program, but it doesn't permit date searching at all, and I unfortunately have never installed Reunion on my Mac laptop. I guess I'll have to plan better before my next trip!

Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
