I got Family Tree Maker 16 “Collector’s Edition” – normally like a hundred bucks, but got it for like $35 on Amazon. It comes with a year’s subscription to Ancestry.com, so I was poking around to see if I could find any documents. It’s been a while since I’ve done any research, so it was nice to get back into it.
I found a picture of the S.S. Campania, which my great-grandparents Samuel and Annie Aidinoff took to America. I found the ship’s manifest a while ago, but always nice to have photos, even if they are generic.
I also found some listings of my great-great-grandfather, Horatio Firth, who was a doctor in Brooklyn.
Nothing really exciting yet, like more branches on the ol’ family tree, but still looking.
