emmajane in ejfamilytree

Dad

My head is really hurting, both physically and metaphorically speaking.

My family tree is driving me crackers - if I could stay focused on one thing it would really help. I start out looking for stuff on my Gt Gt grandad on my mums side and end up with my Gt Gt Gt Gt Gt grandmother on my dads! I wasnt even supposed to be starting his side yet! argh

Organising the paperwork is proving even harder, I am not the most organised person in the world (some what of an under exaggeration). Apart from at work - where I am the most organised person ever - go figure.

Someone from www.genesreunited.co.uk contacted me yesterday and in one fowl swoop I was back to 1590 on one of my dads branches! Of course I need to verify all the details he has given me but its a starting point (back to the getting distracted thing again). Apparently he is my 3rd cousin once removed! I have no idea.

I am planning a visit to my eldest living relatives (he is 78) later this week. Apparently he has photos of my Gt Gt grandad and grandmother. I can wait, I have downloaded a list of useful questions to ask him too, I hope he doesnt mind being interrogated!
