Pentimento Search: Some Genealogy Posts You Might Have Missed

Pentimento: Search


Before I started this genealogy and history blog, I did a few posts over on the older sister site Pentimento. After doing a search on Pentimento tonight for ‘genealogy’, quite a few posts came up and I thought I could share them here since this blog is geared more towards that topic.  If you have time, please click on the link above and read through some of the articles.

Ancestry Free Access Weekend – U. S. Military Records



Military records are one of the most rich in genealogical gold that I have ever used.  The Ancestry U.S. Military records collection contains over a 100 million names and spans 300 years.  Give it a try for free this weekend. Good luck! :)

Two Genealogy Tips On Tuesday





The title sounds catchy, but if I come up with more than two, I’m not changing it!

Fill Our Your Profiles!

Here’s the first one:  Fill out your profiles on sites such as Ancestry.  It doesn’t take that long to type in your name, add a profile photo, etc.  I am currently exchanging messages with a very nice lady who is probably a cousin, her name sounds familiar, but she has not yet filled out that profile so I’m left scratching my head and wondering how I connect. Which leads me to tip number two.

The Home Person In Your Family Tree – Shouldn’t It Be You?

On Ancestry, if you have uploaded a GEDCOM (privatized, of course) you have the option of making yourself the home person.  This just makes sense since you’re the one who uploaded the file and will be sharing it with the world.  People would like to know who the owner is and this is another easy thing to do.

I’ve said it many times before, but I’ll say it again: Genealogical research is all about connecting. Connecting with people, connecting your family trees, and even connecting your profiles. I don’t know how long it’s taken me, but I always take the time to connect my social networking sites to one another.  When I sign up for a new site I take the time to add them.  Genealogy isn’t for hermits, is it?
