How neat to have his book! When I first started researching I wasn't sure how indepth I wanted to go, but very early on I came across a book written about one of my female lines. The man who wrote it did so as a gift to his children before his death - he wanted them to know after he was gone just how many "family" members were out there, so the book started with a couple from the 1700s and documented the thousands of descendants. It inspired me to certainly add that data any time I come across it, though I focus my real research time on my ancestors themselves. So little time, so many relatives!

> I have a website <yourfamilyshistory.com> (note the added "s") as I do a bit of genealogy consulting too. You might be interested though as the homepage has an old photo of a family taken around 1890. The man is Conover Burket (my great great grandfather), his wife Viola, and their 3 children. I recently found and spoke with the great grand daughter of the girl, Florance Burket,which was really neat.
I look forward to receiving your info. Thanks, Lisa
