Tuesday’s Tip: Maybe those online trees aren’t ALL bad … — 14 Comments

  1. Great sleuthing, Jenny.
    Of course, it’s much more interesting to look up other people’s relatives/ancestors, than to chip away at the brick walls in our own, isn’t it!!

  2. I had a similar experience. I have a bunch of my grandmother’s things and she talked a lot about her friend from high school, Hallie. Since I was trying to locate some of Hallie’s descendants so that I could share early photos, I set up a basic tree on ancestry to see if I could find someone. Unfortunately, I struck out.

    Fast forward to a few weeks ago when someone contacted me about my tree and asked if I was related. Turns out she is! So while we haven’t connected any further yet, I feel hopeful that I’ll be able to share some photos with her at a later date.

    I’m so glad you were able to find the owner. And even better that you’re going to get to meet her!
