Suggestion regarding Family Finder

Madeleine Sann
 

As I get older and my genealogy buddies have begun to be listed as deceased in the Family Finder, I think it would be wonderful if researchers could list in the Family Finder where they’ve uploaded copies of their family trees (including JewishGen of course). There should be generous room to do this as there are so many sites where people post their trees. That way, learning that a researcher of a shared name is deceased would not be a closed door. 


Over the years two relatives have found me through the Family Finder. In one case, I had a vague, almost mythical, notion about my cousin’s ancestors - in the other, the Israeli born daughter of a Sann from Poland who was a Survivor found out that she had Sann relatives around the world. Until we connected through the Family Finder, she believed her family in Israel were unique in carrying the surname. Of course some people know where to look for trees but in my case JewishGen was key.
