    Have any of you tried it? Free 14 day trial.

    If any of you have done a family tree or know yours...Who is the coolest person in there?

    I did my mother's side and my father's (adopted) side. Very interesting. Kind of makes me think of what it was like back then. Was it harder or easier than now. Maybe just different.

    Very cool though imo

    The public library here has a genealogy room that's fun. Always interesting people there talking about how much better it is than a pay web service, but I haven't tried one.

    That's the least of it. You are a 2 crude dude. Who was the coolest though?

    Seems like there is no way to cancel the auto billing renewal without canceling your free trial, like you could do with the amazon prime trial. Looks like they stole their graphics from civilization 3.

    Edgar Allan Poe is my ggg uncle. My ggggg grandfather was Robert Looney. All fought in every war since the revolutionary war. Well, with the exception of my generation, since both males carrying my father's name are the last in line.

    I'm somehow also related to Churchill, James Dean and General Sherman's (supposed) personal assistant during the March to Atlanta (Littleton Beard Dean) but I think there's some embellishment in the family histories.

    I double checked with census records. Also kind of makes sense since my grandfather's middle name is Poe, taken from his mother's side. The g grandparents also had lots of historical stuff related to Poe.

    My father's side all came from Bern, Switzerland and settled in PA and OH which I knew... Lots of fam on his side down in Amish/Mennonite country.

    Yeah. To find stuff and validate it you really have to go through too many steps imo.

    I think if no hint leaves appear that means no one has built a tree regarding that person yet. It is strange that no leaves are coming up, they usually pop up when there is a hit on a census record, marriage record or such.

    I have a family tree that our family has been keeping for ages. It's about 26 pages.

    Probably most famous is my great great great grandmother was Jemima Jefferson. She was either the cousin or illegitimate child of Thomas Jefferson. Yeah... they don't know.
    I went outside for a little while.

    Totally overrated

    Rozella Poe is my gg grandmother, Jacob Poe ggg grandfather, so, yeah, I messed up. gggg uncle. I missed a g.

    It's just crazy to think of how we got here. I cannot imagine getting on a boat/ship in the 1700s and going somewhere that hasn't been settled yet. And then pumping out about ten kids.
