Ancestry.com and rabbit holes

Ancestry holes are prolific at Ancestry.com.   One can certainly spend a lot of time and there are so many avenues to chase.   Now if I had the $200 to purchase the international information, I’m sure I could find many more of those rabbit holes   One whole day gone, but more ancient relatives found in my husband’s lineage which is a very difficult one with which to work.

Do any of you work on genealogy?   It’s interesting to find the old, old stories as well as to whom  you might be connected.   I found that one of his lines connects to the Byrd family, but haven’t had the time yet to find if it is the same as the explorer.  I have to be very careful not to open this site very often, because it is so addictive.

    I tried for a while; but, kept running into obstacles. My parents are both deceased. My paternal grandmother died when my dad was young. How young he was, I don’t know. I never could find any records of his mother’s birth or death. My maternal grandmother died in 1955 is all I know. I don’t even remember her first name.

    My sister lives in Florida and she has never tried to work out our family tree.
