I have only recently decided to start using the New Family Search of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have all of my family history – genealogy in the old PAF files and I was not too excited to start uploading information on the internet and connect what is already there in my family tree.
However now that I have started doing it, I can see already some benefit. The first surprise was to find that someone in Argentina had submitted information about one of my ancestors who lived in Italy. Through the New Family Search I found the email address of this person and I wrote to her.
It was a great surprise when she sent me a complete family tree of that ancestor, a family tree that goes back to the year 1623.
An article on Deseret News suggest the use of blogs to gather even more information by connecting with people over the Internet.
According to the article
There are thousands of blogs related to genealogy and family history used by Mormons, Catholics, Jews, Baptists, atheists, and others to study and find their ancestors. People are starting to recognize that blogs and other forms of social media work really well for genealogy.
I suppose that I could write here a list of last names in my family history that could attract others who are doing the same work here
This is a short list, starting from the closest to me
Martinengo, Causarano, Janna, Bertazzolo, Mussarelli, Sasso, Maraldo, Toffoli, Musso, Vercellino, Montesi, Mamola, Santini, Ongaro, Piccinali, De Martin.
Just to start…
