Want to know more about your family history but don't know where to begin? Perhaps you've tried using some of the resource out there (like Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org) but get frustrated by the complexity of those sites. You're not alone!
While there is a plethora of genealogical tools and resources available. many of my clients are quickly frustrated when trying to figure out how to use them. Not only do you have to know how to use and navigate various web sites, but also figure out how to use and store the information on your home computer.
Doing the research alone can be overwhelming, let alone trying to learn how to use different hardware and software technologies at the same time.
Fold3 is a well known genealogy research site for military records. You can find other documents there as well, but the site specializes in military records.
I've been able to find valuable documents there like, "Missing Crew Reports", which have given me insight into the last few minutes of family member's lives during World War II.
Family Tree Maker (FTM) is one of the best genealogy software programs you can buy! It's the same program I use to keep track my family research and documents. I absolutely love it and cannot say enough good things about it (and I've tried other programs).
