My Genealogy Search

This site grew out of efforts to trace my ancestry. I found most of the clues online. As I became fairly good at using the various websites, friends and relatives have asked me to give them suggestions. This website grew out of those suggestions. Since my background is in software development, I decided to use some simple artificial intelligence (AI) programming. It is the AI programming that provides the questions and suggestion when you try the Search Advice.
