Find your place on your family tree! How to add information. Either write on the contact us envelope asking for what is on the database about a person OR:-[1] Search for someone who has died - hint-use maiden / surnames. [2] click the descendants TAB located in a left to right row of various tabs under the persons profile name and dates. [3] You will identify yours (and others) whom you know as just initials. Living people are visible only as initials until corrected and written permission is offered. Names, places and dates are critical. If not certain a c.1980 before a date tells the reader its approximately that time or decade. But to offer any events, memories, copies of documents/photos will ENRICH your family social history and integrate your family connections to your past and present.
