(African Art)



a good website


(from christine's genealogy)

What I've learned so far..........
it's helpful to  Get a DNA test..

1.It's always best to do your own research and
check out & verify your own (multiple)  sources.
just don't copy & paste 
other people's research & info .-ask for permission & always credit your sources*.  

Protect your Private tree &  Photos.

2..Always Think for Yourself !!
Don't just go along  __ "to  get along "-
...follow your own intuition & Back it up with Your Own Research.

3. keep an open mind & your sense of  humor! 

5. It's OK not to have all the answers, to every Family  Mystery.

6. Enjoy the  Process, the Diversity  &  Have Fun!
