In the beginning I had no idea how to perform genealogy. My mother recorded her findings old-school, on paper. The paper was then put into folders and boxes along with photos and articles. When I took over the hunt I thought I was doing an amazing job by simply buying a genealogy computer program and pounding the information she supplied in.
Growing up I was surrounded by an extended family and I always loved attending family events. My parents taught me to call all of the older generations 'Aunt' and 'Uncle' as a sign of respect. Admittedly this kept things simple but it also kept my real relationship to each of them a mystery to me.
