About Me - a Genealogy Nut

Here's the Scoop About Me and This Website

This page is a little bit about me and what genealogy-made-easier.com is all about - making your family history search easier because you can use some of my tricks and tips.

Owner and webmaster of Genealogy Made Easier
The 'genealogy nut'

Hi. My name is Margaret, but my friends call me Marg. I am not a professional genealogist, but an experienced amateur. As I have been working on my mom's "family tree" for several decades now, I have learned a lot of tricks and developed organizational ideas for researching my family history.

My mother was interested in "the family tree" as she always called it. When she started, it was the age of typewriters, long before computers and the Internet.

Her travails at typing pages and then having to retype them all when anything new was added or changed in the tree made me want to find a better way for her. So, I started as an organizational person, not a genealogy searcher.

When I got my first computer in the early '80's, the whole world of genealogy organization changed. Now I had a word processor, and I could add, delete, change, and re-arrange to my heart's content. With that one tool, I was able to transform the process of keeping the genealogy information that my mother gathered organized in a painless manner.

Perhaps the ease of the organization made me look for more to do. I do not know, but one day I realized that the genealogy bug had me too!

So, that's a bit about me.

Now, What Can I Do To Make Your Family Tree Journey Easier?

With the advent of the Internet, the whole world has become yours. There is an increasing amount of genealogical information being digitized every day and placed in this huge collection for you to use.

With that, comes further organizational issues:

Sometimes it seems like a giant jigsaw puzzle, except that when you find one piece, instead of being closer to finishing the puzzle, you are usually further away because each piece found raises further questions and possibilities for more information.

It is enough to make your head fly off some days - I hope this site will help you keep your head firmly attached!

Roam around this site, and take away with you any knowledge you can use in your family history quest.

You don't have to follow the same trial and error process I did. I have tried to take those twists and turns and make them into specific steps you can follow in your genealogy search.

Hopefully that way your path will be a straighter one than mine was.

I am delighted to make it easier for you in any ways that I can!

Remember - A Family Tree Is Never Done!
