That is a good way to do it. I have asked about my grandparents and that is as far as I have gotten. So, I have not done much at all.

I personnaly have not. My husbands cousin is very into doing that though. She has traced the family tree all the way back to the Mayflower! It's just amazing. Once you get her talking about it - you can't get her to shut up!
