”Are you doing any research yourself to find the families of the people in your orphan photos?”
I really don’t have the time. I am hoping the readers will get curious enough to do a little sleuthing. For now I am just happy to rescue the photos and keep them safe.
”Do you have your family tree on FamilySearch’s Family Tree?”
I have a few selected individuals and small branches on FS’s Family Tree. I do not have my entire file uploaded nor do I have any immediate plans to do so. I upload a person here or there as I am working on them to give me the time to combine duplicates, add notes, etc.
”I have gotten addicted to indexing records [FamilySearch Indexing] What is your favorite thing to index?”
I am partial to military records. I also like any sort of death record because I think they are very interesting. My current favorite project is the Maine Delayed Births, Marriages, and Deaths.
”How long does it normally take to get a SS-5 back?”
A long time, at least 8 weeks.
