This year’s Wold Family Reunion was awsome!
There were quite a few family members that attended and I was so excited to meet my relatives that I had never met. I have put photos of the reunion in the Media Gallery for you to check out.
It will take a while but I will try to identify the folks in the photos which will help our genealogy folks.

As a beginner in geneaology, I tried a bunch of different apps. Many were very complex – others were not robust enough. I started and stopped about 10 times. Over the years my interest wained but I kept finding myself wondering about my heritage. One of my coworkers was really into geneaology and he peaked my interest once again. I got back into Ancestry.com and started searching. I was amazed how much I was able to find. There are a few tips that you may want to know about. I will post them on occasion.
Tip #1: When adding a new hint to your tree, if the hint includes ‘New’ people, verify that they are indeed ‘New’ – simple spelling or capitalization of words may cause Ancestry to be unable automatically match the names. There is a link you should click on that says ‘Not a new person?’ – click on that and if you know the name you can look for it – if it sees anything close, it will present it for you to pick. Doing this will keep you from having doubles of names in your tree that you have to clean up.
