While sorting through old papers I came across a page on which I had written a few facts about my great Grandparents. It reminded me that I wanted to learn more about my family's history, but my memory is terrible and just hearing stories isn't good enough, so I started looking for software to help me organize all the data. I found a great product called Reunion and entered everything I know in just a few hours. The software is incredibly easy to use and once the data is in there, you can generate all kinds of charts, reports and even web pages. I'm looking forward to learning not only about my family, but also about history and geography as I trace people back to Europe.
The photos above are of my maternal Grandparents in Alberta in the 1950's.
