Many family members have joined

It's been a busy week with the family tree. Many family members are joining and passing it on to others. People are updating their information and adding photos of events. It is a wonderful thing to see unfold.

If you're reading this and would like to join us, please send me an email. Let me know who your siblings, parents, and grandparents so that I can invite you to the correct space on the family tree.

A special mail

Yesterday a special piece of mail arrived, a small tube from Hawaii was in our mailbox. I opened it and to my surprise it was from Herman Smith the husband of Janet Ortiz, sister of Nisena "Niseng" Ortiz, my grandmother.

He had been working on the Ortiz family tree for decades and he shared it with me.

I called him to thank him for the gift, and we chatted a bit, and I entered all his information into a seperate Geni tree which I set up for him. When the time is right, I'll merge the two trees.

Here is what is I entered for the Ortiz side of the family

The Geni Tree is growing

Well, a number of people are signing up at Geni to at least help out with the simplest part of the family tree. Getting the names, birthdays, and parents attached to the correct spots on the tree is challenging. Getting people to help you AND provide you with a photo of themselves is incredible!

I'm excited about this because it's simple, easy, and I hope to see a good amount of portraits on the family tree in the up coming weeks.

Facebook has been a big help in leaping into this project.
