Let me present my godfather !


At this moment he is 93 years old and has a great curriculum:

  • Defender of the local heritage in his region
  • Historical expert of the region
  • School teacher for 45 years
  • Jounalist and wrote more than 40000 articles
  • Still active in the local community
  • He investigated our family tree and writed down a research of accademical value

SO IF WE HAVE A LACK OF INSPIRATION JUST TAKE AN EXAMPLE !

I'M VERY PROUD OF HIM !

It is very encouraging to see your grandfathers accomplishments Attila.

I have a lot of respect for teachers because of how significantly they contribute to their students lives. If it wasn't for my high school chemistry teacher, I would not have chosen to study chemical engineering during college. If it wasn't for my English teacher, I would not be able to write as well as I do now.

Cheers

Nice! Becky :)

One day I'm going to purchase the Ancestry DNA kit that I always see being advertised. And I hope that day comes soon!

That's also a nice picture of you and your godfather! ~ Becky

Wow Attila,
I am glad you got sorted, nothing too serious I hope.
What methods did your Godfather use in his investigations?,
I would like to start a family tree of my De La Cruz heritage, it is from Spain, I was told by my late Grandfather. It would be great to know how to start. here is a WA member with a site

I visited a few times but there is not much to go on there.

Once again great to have you back Attila, my friend.

It's a very difficult study, you need tons of patience, archieve consulting if they grand acces, baptise acts,.........

I advice to consult every older person in the family and listen to their stories and writeit down and than you start to compare !

And build a tree....

My godfather spend more than 50 years to do this...

Older people of a family are living databanks !

They master the story telling and give good details !

For example this blog is a mass communication we have to adapt to fast writing and answering, but the quality of a discussion suffers a lot.....
