Someone made the remark to the group the other day that if more people would
post their family trees to the FTJP, we would be able to connect with many
more relatives and interested parties. I would like to know how documented
or complete one's tree should be before posting. Every day that passes, I
feel another opportunity has slipped by. So, is a Work-in-Progress good
enough? >>

*Every* tree is a work-in-progress. Whether you are just starting or have
been researching your family for decades, *post your tree* to the Family
Tree of the Jewish People. We all have portions of our family that can be
categorized as unfinished. We all have doubts and questions and even
mistakes in our trees. Don't let that hold you back. I have been able to
reconstruct entire branches because someone like yourself posted a small
connection to a particular line.
It *does work*. Send in your gedcoms, and resend in revised ones every 6
You'll find more cousins and more cousins will find you.
