Well, that was a surprise.
So I went online tonight on a whim to see what all has happened in the world of online genealogy since I took my last serious look (several years ago).
If you are impartial to having your ancestors “baptized” posthumously by Mormon missionaries, this one’s for you.
What had taken me hours upon hours – no, months upon months – to compile in family history was, quite literally, fairly easy tonight in the space of an hour or two.
I’m a huge technology advocate and often an early adopter, so I appreciate the leapfrogging advances that come every few months in the world of tech. To see it some 20 years later, though – that was on a scale I wasn’t expecting. I shouldn’t be surprised, but it is simply amazing how easy this has gotten.
I still have a lot of validating to do, but Lord knows I did that homework way back when. Now I am plugging in facts and literally connecting people-dots.
The coolest part: It looks like I’m getting closer to validating that our family were among the founding fathers of the San Antonio de Bexar – San Antonio, Texas.
I really do think my head might pop.
