WikiTree with free genealogy help. They have templates to fill in with your information and then search engines to use to find other surnames that match yours..I've been able to fill in information and by doing searches found a few photos I've never seen before. The above lady is my great grandmother, Laura Alice Hunt Wagner. She's my maternal grandmothers mother. Never seen this photo before but found it, and her tombstone on another site, called Find A Grave along with a photo of the gravesite.
I also found a photo of her husband, Henry A. Wagner.
They also had a photo of the gravesite,
The only photo I have is of both of them taken out on the dry farm in Montana.
Its been almost addicting, finding these photos and tracing the ancestors. I did this way back when and have just picked it up again.
When I think, the huge box of photos my grandfather had, and how they were given away to the thrift shop back in the 70s as the family thought no one would want them, sigh. I'm so thankful for the web and others that have the same interests. You never know what a long lost family member has a photo you will cherish.
If you'd like to start your own family tree, the Wiki Tree site is a good one. Ancestry.com is excellent for research but it is pricey. They do offer a 14 day free trial. Find a Grave is excellent also and is free.
