Have you been on FamilySearch.Org Research Wiki? Well, I will give you a little tour of the Research Wiki which is a “free, online genealogy and family history guide that lists websites, provides research strategies, and suggests records and resources to help you find ancestors from all over the world.”
Have you taken a 23andme DNA test? Have you tested out Family Tree? 23andme Family Tree is fairly new function that has been added to the site.
I was playing around with my tree last night and I was able to connect the dots with a couple of my DNA cousins, but I am going to need a little more help from some of my DNA cousins to figure out our connection. I sent a few messages last night so hopefully they get back to me and are able to fill in some holes.
If you have tested it out the Family Tree let me know your thoughts.

If you are able to please get from behind your computer and hit the streets to do some genealogical research. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of information available online but there is so much that has not been put online yet. Check out this episode as the panelist discuss how to properly prepare, what to do while on the ground, and how to distill the information you collect while researching offline.
