Updated my Ancestry file ... finally

I woke up early this morning and decided to take a look at the old to do list. We all have this sort of list. It's made with god intentions but have you ever noticed as we cross one item off two more items find their way on the list! Anyway, something woke me up at 4 this morning and since I normally wake up at 5 anyway I decided to just stay up. My FarmTown (yeah - I'm addicted!) was not ready so I pulled out the to do list. I think I could probably wake up at 3 for an entire month and still have a nice list!

Today - I updated my family file on Ancestry.com finally. It's been a long time coming. If you would like to check it out, it is called Ruczhak Family Tree. It covers: Ruczhak/Hruszczak, Matys, Kurenda, Skrabalek, Still, Walsh/Welsh, O'Flaherty, Durkin, Keating, Murphy, VanHorn, Rice, Bing, Way, Eckman, Deyoe, Schermerhorn, Herr, Miller, Kirchner and more.

I used to be able to recall any date and name or place or event ... then I computerized. I love it don't get me wrong but sometimes this grey cells upstairs just don't recall the facts as they used to! I rely so heavily on my laptop, my FTM and my many many files!

I wish I could say I found an easy way to update my gedcom (is there one btw?) but alas I ended up deleting and re-importing. In the end, it's all good but I do think I made extra work for myself. Well ... it's 6 am ... time to get ready for the paying job so I can afford to continue enjoying the addiction of genealogy!
