My new infatuation

When I have the time to indulge in this one who knows but it is fascinating! I am starting to dabble into my family tree. I never thought that I would ever be interested in it but once you start digging.... I know there is a lot of hype here in Australia at the moment about people's family trees but thats not what got me started. That is just coincidence. I am reading a fascinating book about one man's search for a branch of his family that died in Poland during the German occupation and how he is going about finding out what happened to them exactly. So I began creating a family tree on ancestry.com.au . At first you seem to find nothing that relates to your family and then when you dig a little further things start to look promising. The only problem is the important records like birth, death and marriage notices cost to look at. But eventually I will have to fork out but I just want to know that they are the right documents to look at. Anyway, I'll let you know if I find an axe murderer or something.
