Sometimes I think it would be good to know my family history. I know my maternal grandmother came from Prince Edward Island Nova Scotia and her mother came from Scotland. are you a geneology nut? how does one get started?

I can't believe that no one responded to your question. I can't say that I'm a geneology nut, but my great grandmother was. From my kids all the way back we have 18 generations. She started by interviewing all of her living relatives for all the details they could remember. I've used Family Tree Maker for years to keep track of all her research electonically and adding in my own information when I get it. There are now over 900 people in my tree. There are tons of free research stuff on the internet.
