Anyone into that? I've been doing it for years even before the internet and found it fascinating to see the old documents and the handwriting.
Yes...and no. It's a little more complicated for me. I'm adopted and have very limited information to go on. (I know my biological mother's name, the state she was from and her age. She was divorced, so I'm not sure if I have her maiden name or her married name.) A few years ago I signed up for a free trial at Ancestry.com. There were several people with her name in her state and I wasn't sure if I was researching the correct one. I abandoned my efforts also.
