I found my 3rd great-grandparents, David and Julia (Oldham) Lyon! They were married September 1, 1836 in Dearborn County, Indiana.

The Indiana State Library has more unrestricted access databases, too.
Biography, Cemetery Locator, World War II Servicemen, Newspapers and more.

Family Tree Maker 2006

I have been using Family Tree Maker since version 1.0 to record my genealogy. Entering information about a person is like entering information into a 3 x 5 recipe card. I have made Descendant Family Tree Charts for Family Reunions. The charts were great to help relatives understand how they were related to their new found cousins.

Today, Family Tree Maker 2006 makes it easier to edit information about a person in the individual box. There are more charts that can be created with the new Charting Companion for Family Tree Maker.

There is a helpful Family Tree Maker 2006 book to show you how to record information. If you still have questions, you can post your question on the GenForum Genealogy Software and Internet Message Boards for Family Tree Maker.

RootsWeb Mailing Lists

I have subscribed to many Mailing Lists on RootsWeb over the years. They have been extremely helpful in my genealogy research. There are Surnames, States & Counties, Countries and more. I post information about the ancestors I'm researching, where I'm researching and for what type of information. There are lots of helpful researchers. We may not be related, but there is always someone who can tell me where to look for information or they might have the information!

You subscribe for free to these lists. When you send a message to the list, everyone on the list receives the message. The message is delivered to your e-mail address. I really recommend trying these Mailing Lists. I have subscribed to various states and countries like Indiana, Canada and Northern Ireland.
