[Comments] (3) Spinning Wheels, Turning Round: I have been working on my genealogy, checking on the people whose surnames start with H, just forever, and I'm nowhere near done. I have 13 more pages of H surnames to go. Sometimes I feel like I will never get through them.

H is a real biggie. Both my grandmothers had H surnames, Henderson and Hansen, so that makes a big dent right there. Also there is the royalty of HOLLAND, and the kings of the HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE and HUNGARY. Lots of the Viking names begin with H, as do many Welsh.

I found and corrected several big booboos today.

How in the world do you do all that checking??? I don't even know how to read a pedigree chart, let alone correct one!

Well, I do have very basic knowledge about such things, but I'm baffled by what you're describing.

I look the people up on the church's genealogy website, familysearch.org. I'm trying to get all of the ancestors who are listed there on a chart correctly. Once I finish, I will burn you a CD and the magic information will be YOURS!
