Like many people, I am interested in where my family came from and who they were. It's definitely something that requires a lot of time and searching - and unfortunately some of the information I'm looking for is hard to find at the moment. However, I lucked out on one of our family names. I asked my grandmother and she got me in contact with a relative who sent me information tracing that particular branch back to England in the early 1500's! Talk about getting a wonderful gift of information - all I had to do was ask!
In the near future, I'd like to put more time into searching and organizing information. Perhaps even putting together a webpage like I see online on other family pages :)
