Thanks for the advice, Ole. Unfortunately, I am about the most elderly (wow, that's kinda hard to write) member of my family. Even twenty years ago when I would try to talk with my grandparents, they were not too knowledgeable about their own family.

My grandfather was a veteran of WWI, and would flat refuse to talk about his experiences. When spending the night with my grandparents as a kid, he forbade me of watching Combat, Hogans Heroes, or any other war themed (silly or not) show. He said that anything on television was an insult to the actual horrors of war.

Anyway - back to the point. I'm open to any advice as to how to put together a family tree that can take me back to the mid 1800's. Thanks!
