Echo of the Past documents my journey in rediscovering my roots after my last computer was destroyed and I lost the 10,000 names on my family tree.

I'm an ethnic mutt. My background is varied and the world is small; it's likely that my research will help somebody, somewhere, so please feel free to use me as a source if need be.

Feedback is more than welcome, and I read any and all comments I get. I'm also up for trading links. If you're interested, email me at: PrettySiren@gmail.com with "link request" as the subject line. (Genealogy and history sites/blogs only please.)

Welcome to Echo of the Past

Welcome to Echo of the Past!

I have been an amateur genealogist for over a decade now, having researched my genealogy since I was eight years old. I'm twenty now, and in the past twelve years, I've built on my relatives' genealogical databases and family trees and have, at one time, had a family tree comprising more than ten thousand individuals.

Sadly, my old computer crashed and I lost everything. So, this blog will chronicle my journey as I rediscover my roots from scratch. I'll write about my own research and what I find on my family as well as general tiptorials and things to do to get started. In other words, this is going to be an all-encompassing genealogy blog, full of history and struggle.

I tend to be pretty in-depth about my research. As any genealogist knows, we're all pretty much related, so please feel free to use my blog as a source for your own research. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment or email me.

If you think we might be related, please let me know and we can include each other on our family trees!

I foresee this is going to be a fun adventure; much like the phoenix rising out of the ashes, I plan to have my family tree database back up to ten thousand names before two years are out.
