So my 22nd grandfather’s BROTHER’s grandmother’s SISTER was married to a guy whose mother’s SISTER was married to Ghengis Khan which makes our connections good enough to get invited to random baby showers but not to weddings.

oh I found 126 – but the servers keep locking up. They were recently featured in the news a couple of days ago: biggest scientifically verified family tree (13 million names!) so now my favorite genealogy site is getting overloaded with n00bs.

What I love about this site is it’s total crowd knowledge stuff. I’m contributing to a collective tree and making use of other people’s work. I can make some corrections to the mistakes of others (and they to mine).

The web is littered with genealogy info from people’s work over the last 25+ yrs of making digital charts and stuff. It’s like a central spot to dump this stuff into. I went through old family papers and was able to contribute unique info too, yet I also like bringing over the messy stuff I find in places like findagrave into a neat and clean system, bringing over biographies, headstones and such.
