Note: Mary Stephenson <email@example.com> to Barbara Poole <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sat, Mar 13, 2010 at 1:07 PM Barbara, Yes, I'm still doing genealogy. As my sister-in-law told me when I started, it's addictive! I just uploaded my tree to Rootsweb, it's 4ma4f (stands for 4mothers and 4fathers). I then saw I hadn't keep my gedcom up to date so am changing that. I also have a tree Lay/Keplinger/Siemiller/Pratt on Ancestry.com that is more current. The main thing I've changed on the Lay line is that my brother found Mary Turner's (wife of Benjamin Lay) father's & siblings names. Still haven't found who her mother was. I was somewhat proud of myself since I had suggested the same people based on the limited census info available back then. My brother did the leg work to confirm it. I didn't watch the show but hope it increases interest in genealogy. Are you interested in DNA testing for genealogy? There is now a way to match up with cousins thru DNA. I tested with 23andMe. Found a Lay cousin that descends from Daniel & Anna Bull Lay. If you are interested let me know. There is a special reduced price thru the end of March. FamilytreeDNA is also starting the same thing. Either delete our names or put in living for the name. I think you're right about the flaw in Rootsweb letting those names show. Conversely it's rather humorous to find an ancestor from 100+ years ago listed as living. If that were true it would make this genealogy work so much easier. Good to hear from you again, Mary
