I began to wonder if they had come from Cape Cod where my wife's family had been long established. I soon found that they had indeed come from that area and one had been born on the Little James, a ship that made a voyage to Plymouth in I avidly followed these people and they were in the area at the same time. I thought this was most remarkable considering how large is our country and how many people from all parts move about.

Robert thanks again for being a special person. I had told my brother about this and he said that is a lot of money for that bunch of books, but after I showed him what I got out of them he agreed that there had to be a special way to get things off the Internet. Robert, I want to thank you again for such powerful bunch of books. Thanks for putting them together.

Here are just a few. I have purchased many instruction books and most of them were not much help at all, and are just taking up space. I think the authors assume we already know more than we do. Coryell " My husband is enjoying the books as much as I am. We appreciate your clear and detailed approach. We have learned the computer by using it. Now we know how to achieve results!

Use your imagination and be honest with yourself… It would be a safe bet to say that you would become known as "Mr. But seriously, my question for you is this: What would you do differently than you are doing now? Because your approach to genealogy research would certainly change. The most important change would be in your mind. A change of attitude, along with a firmer resolve to just go out and do it take action.
Depending on who you ask, your family history is worth much MORE than a million dollars. In reality, it is priceless. Because of your research efforts, your name will be revered over the years in your family. What you do now will spark the interests and touch the hearts of future generations if you preserve your work within your family.
Sure, there are things to learn, frustrations, and brick walls. But it is not impossible and can be lots of fun - and a very satisfying endeavor. I encourage you to take the time from your busy life to become a "history student. What country, state, township did they come from? What was happening in those areas during the known span of time that they dwelt there? I also encourage you to take the time and look at the " Research Outlines " from the Family History Library that I have mentioned time and time again in the Treasure Maps Genealogy newsletter about your states or countries of interest.
There you will find many facts, dates, and shortcuts that will help you put it all together. And finally, inquire as much as you possibly can with other family members. The clock is ticking and valuable word of mouth history and clues to your research are fading away. Make the call, write the letter - and doors will start to open for you. Remember, the more you know, and the more clues that you have - the more valuable the Internet will become to your personal research. I love this question.
One of my greatest regrets is that I realized too late how much my parents knew about our extended family … and how little I knew. But by then it was too late. I have very little knowledge of our extended family, and nor does my brother. According to an uncle of mine, our family name Angel dates back to Middle English. Seems that I either had an ancestor who looked angelic or, possibly, played an angel in a religious pageant. But I do have a treasure trove of family history waiting to be shared with my grandchildren.
Your grandchildren may be more interested in your family history than you think! I would ask for a down-payment on the million dollars, and use it to travel to places my ancestors lived! They come from all over, so it would be quite expensive:
