My Cousin Contacted Me - He Has 40 + Years of Work to Share
My distant cousin sent me an email this morning. He is 86 years old and has worked on putting the family tree together. He has been researching for over 40 years. He has visited most of the places where our ancestors lived. He has an amazing array of information.
He sent me a summary of all of the family tree with his notes. It is so very thorough, it took me quite a while to read through the information. I will have to study it later. He also offered to send me a CD with his whole file from Family Tree Maker, but the version he has is older and my version is newer. He told me that it won't transfer to the newer version. I am going to call and speak with him tomorrow.
I just can't believe someone is willing to hand over his 40 odd years of work. The time and money that he has incorporated in this research is astounding. This is just so incredible!!
