About Me

This Blog was created to help me understand how to use the Family Tree Maker program. 

Some times a picture is worth many words. 

I am adding a new feature on this page:

The ability for Readers of the blog to Request a Blog post on a specific topic

That link will take you to a Google Document where you can submit your request.

I live in the beautiful North West corner of New Jersey that most people don't know exists in our beautiful state. (no exit numbers). I "retired" after 30 years with a major corporation but am busier now than when I was working "full time." 

After being in the United States Coast Guard, I lived in Maryland and then came back to my home state of New Jersey. 

I started my "collecting of ancestors" about 15 years ago (1996) when my youngest daughter gave me Family Tree Maker (version 3.4) as a gift to "give me something to do." Little did I know where this would lead me and the people I would meet. 

I have a couple of other Blogs: My Tombstone  Collection: This blog is a result of taking pictures in Cemeteries. Most of these photographs can also be found on the Find-A-Grave website.  Some of the photographs are part of my Family Files and others are not. 

A Worthington Blog: This blog is about my family research. I have posted articles about some of the Genealogy Tools that I use in my research. Some family stories are there as well as Queries from other Worthington researchers. It's my Cousin Bait Blog.

I have a Google+ Community where we can have conversations about the Family Tree Maker program. It is a closed community but you are welcome to request to join. Please understand that I will review your Google Profile before I accept your request. I am looking for what we might have in common and why you might was wanting to join that community.
