I too like to research all the children of an ancestor's family, who they
married and the names etc., of their children. It is so much more
interesting and you learn such a lot about the family as a whole too.
Following family lines can put you in touch with living descendants and
whilst you may not have photographs etc., of a common ancestor, another has.
The history of the family and how they lived and what occupations they
followed is also of interest. As Caroline has said Family history today is
not what it was. It is so easy today and also easy to make mistakes, but
much more enjoyable I think as you can hop from census to census and
purchase Parish Register transcripts. All help to make discoveries that one
simply did not have the time to make several years ago.
In the course of my research I have linked with many people, one of whom is
Pat Halliday [Dai Oz's wife]. Pat's ancestress married my Great
Grandfather's brother in Cardiff.
