Here are your possible answers:
- What, are you mad? There's no such thing as TMI in genealogy!
- Only if you already have Census records of your 4th cousin 2x removed and tax records of the neighbor who lent your g-g-grandpa the $ for his passage to the new world.
- What else are 1-terrabyte hard drives for?
- Not as long as there's an in-law or distant cousin unaccounted for from cradle to grave.
- All of the above.
One of my cousins has a notebook with names/dates, which her mother started decades ago, and photos as well. Can't wait till she gets me copies! A cousin of my husband might have photos of his ancestors, but I know she's busy and means to share when she has a chance.
Some people on our family tree are just stubbornly mysterious and elusive. Please, cousins, I'd love to know what you know! Thank you. Over and out :)
