You are very welcome.
I totally understand about “not being able to see the forest for the trees”. I have this especially with my Toscano surname. I have so many Nicola Toscano's and they appear on each of my parents trees. Some are related, most don't seem to be at this stage. I guess I'll find the link as I journey further back. It can be somewhat overwelming at times but also incredibly exciting. (It certainly beats doing the sudoku – our son is very happy, he gets to have it all to himself now!)
Are you using a program? I'm not but I type up Family Group Records, individual pedigrees and keep notes etc. I have these printed out as well. I now just need to work out a logical numbering system which works for me. Oh dear..... too hard...... and not as exciting as discovering and learning about new family.
I use Ancestry.com, if that is what you are referring to as a program. No, I was meaning the Software Programs that you buy like Roots Magic, Family Tree Maker, Legacy and then install onto your computer. I think you are able to download simpler versions from the net as well. I think you just enter the data and then from there you are able to print off various charts, reports etc (e.g. pedigree charts, timelines, family group records). Possibly Ancestery.com does this too, not sure.
I had no idea what I was getting into when Family Search put the Frigento, Italy records online, now I can't stop as I don't want to miss any ancestors! Good on you, keep going, you are doing great.It is very addicative isn't it?
I shall plug along as when I find who I know is a true ancestor, I know it is all worth it! ABSOLUTELY!
