I can’t remember there ever being a time, when I was not learning or hearing about my ancestors. Stories about mariners, local heroes, interesting tidbits and who I am currently or never related to, was an ongoing occurrence in my family. Genealogy research is second nature to me, and a version of mostly dead (and some most certainly alive elderly) relatives can be found on the following site: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=vmleslie
Since 2017, Rootsweb has been “temporarily” disabled for uploads. I used a PlugIn called GenShow to compile a list of current surnames in my genealogy database. If you are unable to match the name in the rootsweb site, please leave a message below, and I can email you any updated data, if applicable.
I gathered together descriptions and links to some of my favourite Genealogy Websites.
Where did all that DNA come from? My experience with genealogy DNA results.
Late in 2016 I compiled a list of Canadian Censuses. Some of the sources are restricted to members only (Ancestory.ca and Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia.)
After realizing how much I was using the list of Canadian Censuses, I started compiling a list of where free vital statistics can be found.
