Baby Bites? No, More Like The Giant's!

OK - here I go.  Now that I have my blog name and have hopefully given an acceptable explanation for why I am here, I guess I should get started.  I know that I have most likely bitten off more than I can chew, which is why having more knowledgeable people leave comments (hint, hint!) would be a blessing!  I am in the process of researching my parents' trees as well as both of my husbands' parents' trees.  Just a little bit of information, huh?  I have been fortunate enough to find that some awesome distant cousins have already begun some of the lines, which has been a great beginning, and I have been on ancestry since 2007, so I am not a complete "newby."  But do you realize how many sets of  4th great grandparents we all have???? Try out 64 for size - now multiply that by 4 (my mom's family, my dad's family, my mother-in-law's family, and my father-in-law's family).  That is the number of surnames I would ideally end up knowing about......in a perfect world......or at Hogwarts.  ACCIO ANCESTORS!!!

I hope to begin REAL posts soon.  I am still trying to work out how to add pictures and make my blog look more like ME. Not to mention which family trees to begin with. Wish me luck!
