Dwight Baker
I do a lot of on line research and have developed processes to find things.
Until the libraries closed I was giving a weekly workship at the Hutto Library.
I manage 8 of the State Network Genealogy groups.
If you have not used one, there is one for every state.
Here is Texas and to join just click the join button and answer three questions and you are in.
I have been doing my family research for over 35 years.
I have used the Internet for 4 years before Al Gore invented it.
Before that I was a User Group manager on ARPAnet and ran a BBS with genealogy groups.
I had my DNA tested in 2006 and was matched to a group Name project.
I was the sixth Baker in the Bakers of Baltimore County Maryland.
It took the 31st member of that group that had a close match to solve my brick wall.
Here is the group Name project for YDna and you should join one if you have tested.
By helping many people every day I have learned a lot of tricks.
I am also a 10 year user of Find A Grave with over 190,000 memorials created.
Plase contact me via my Hutto Genealogical Society web page.
