Genealogy, what a beast

Seriously.  The file I had saved in 2007 included Sevigny, Simoneau, as well as the start of Betty, Arpin & McGaunn. has been a huge help so far finding missing dates, family members, etc.

Weirdly enough, the family tree has been expanded under Benjamin Simoneau’s tree, as well as Omer Sevigny’s tree, I think by accident.  It’s pretty interesting when you find out who you end up being related to.

That said, I’m finding that I shouldn’t fight it and keep the tree “narrow”, rather; put it all together, then parse out the information later.  Fortunately, the Family Tree Maker allows you to do that, so I should be able to make some really cool trees in the future.
