After a twenty year gap I'm working up my family lines on Ancestry. Converting the scribbled paper.
It's a lot easier with computers than microfilm records but I'm glad I got the oral history while it was available.

Very addictive.
I also shelled out for the DNA spit test which put the 84 third cousin matches in a close spread to where I think my ancestors came from.
A couple have emailed and one has spotted an error in one of my lines which has saved me a lot of grief and opened up new directions of research.

What's the consensus now on the accuracy of the DNA test? It was regarded with great scepticism at one time by the experts in the field.....
