Since I'm finished with school and have a bit more time on my hands, I've picked back up with my family history. Genealogy is a very fun and addicting hobby. I've been working on it off and on for years now, and hope to get it organized this summer. Any one else into it? If so, what do you use to organize your information (computer programs, etc.).
I have never done it, but both sides of family are very well traced. My father's side has had a family reunion annually for well over 100 years. I am a long way off related to L.L. Bean, the retailer, too bad I am not more closely related. My grandfather on my mother's side was able to trace my family history all the way back to Alaric I in century 300-400 France. I don't know how he did it, but he passed away nearly 20 years ago, so he was able to do it with no internet. He was the smartest person I ever met though.
Good luck with your research.
