Family History Week #FHWeek 2018 – Do you put your Family History online?

Do you put your family history online?

My-Family-History-Week-logo-300x226Yes and No! I have a very out of date tree on Ancestry that is private and I placed there for my benefit when I was travelling about five year ago. I also have the same out of date tree online at Genes Reunited.

In terms of putting my material online, then yes I am in the process of uploading. I have two registered surnames with the Guild of One-Name Studies, both of those surnames have websites as part of the Members’ Website Project (MWP). I plan on uploading the various photographs and documents to website, providing the source citation. I will also be adding, in the case of photographs, who own the copyright.

I have just sent off my Ancestry DNA test and in order for that to work properly I am going to need to open up my Ancestry Tree or at lease provide some tree. I do have a DNA project that goes along side my Orlando One-Name Study and I am particularly interested in connecting with people on that line. I plan to write a series in the coming months about my DNA results, and the tests, so stay tuned for that!
