I have often said, of myself, that a lot of my computer troubles are caused by operator error.
This has morphed into Genealogical Problems as well. I belong to many Roots Web Groups and have left many messages on their boards. I am subscribed to Ancestry and posted queries on the boards at that location. I search the information on the LDS Site, I find a little but not a lot.
I am jealous of people who can trace their ancestors back to 1500, or even Adam and Eve, when I can get back no further than my great grandparents.
Is this Operator Error again? What am I doing wrong, and how can I correct it? I am finding information in the USA, but when it comes to tracing people in Europe I am finding NOTHING. I can understand the problems with trying to understand German, but I can not even find information in English.
I am pretty frustrated with myself, but I shall continue. I keep hoping that some information will become known to me and I will be able to continue my research. Maybe it is because the earliest of my ancestors who arrived came over in 1872 and the latest in 1926. I haven’t found the mother lode yet, but I am trying.
