Family Search has always been available to anyone who wishes to do their genealogy. Just be aware that your tree is part of everyone else's tree. There are no individual trees like on Ancestry. The information on your great great grandfather can be added to or changed by anyone. Accurate or not. But you also will be able to share in photos or stories that others have and you don't.

Patricia Carswell is on the money: graphite pencils in a soft lead for annotating the backs of photos. It's archival.

I love to use old family photos and souvenirs in decor. They add such character to the space. Thanks for your article on the subject.
