Family History Research Hints and Tips

About Me

I’ve been involved in family history research for over 50 years. I have multiple genealogy related websites. Like everyone else, I have famous ancestors, black sheep ancestors and lots of ‘normal’ ancestors. Regardless of their claim to ‘fame’, I am happy to have found them.


  1. Lee,

  3. My 4th great-grandmother was Jean Gordon (born 1736) of Clashdow. Her father’s name was Robert Gordon. Any relation?

  4. Please, I am hoping to contact the webmaster of the famhist.us website. Its domain has expired and I was using it as part of my research. Help! What can be done to get the site and the records back?? It was a fabulous resource!
