Ancestor Search

I've been quiet and engrossed in completing a project I've been wanting to do for at least a dozen years.  My geneology is such a hodge-podge.  My dad never talked about his parents.  Mom just threw pictures in a box and what a mess it was to sort through.  I'm not a scrapbooker, but I did want to put something special together for my kids.  I ordered this great geneology chart from at least 10 years ago.  They are still available on that website.  This is what I've discovered so far through my wonderful cousins, MaryAnne and Lee who have always kept in touch with family and by using  What a wonderful website!  So far I have unearthed 2 great grandparents, four 2x grandparents, six 3x grandparents, four 4x grandparents and one line that goes back to the late 1400's.  It's quite blowing my mind and become a mission.  Discovered we have a bizillion distant cousins in Fitgerald, Georgia who have been online uploading family trees.  Now this is a fabulous gift from the age of technology!
