My Quest

My Quest for the last couple of years has been to find all the living descendants of John Liming. I have been searching on ancestry.com and added the 400th username this week. I have created an excel file and added each person's username,  name of connecting Liming ancestor, which of John's sons branches, John II or William, and emails if I can get them. I ask for their name and birthdate/location so that I can add them to my master Liming tree. Lastly I ask if they have taken or will consider taking a DNA test and join the Lemon DNA project at Family Tree DNA.


Why am I on this quest? I have wanted for many years to start an official Liming Family Society. All the people I find are potential members if the organization gets started.
So if you are a descendant, follow this blog, leave a comment, contact me. Who is your connecting Liming/Leming/Lemmons/Lemons ancestor?
In the first post I made to the blog yesterday, I posted a profile of my immigrant ancestor John Liming/Lyming. To make the profile I used a combination of my records and sources and a new website called historylines.com.  History Lines works by generating contextual historical paragraphs based on the dates that are entered for each person's facts in a tree and the sources used.  It makes creating profiles like this pretty easy to do. 
I have tried a couple of other genealogy story generating software before, but I like this one alot. With the promo code SHARE40 get one year for $35 instead of the $59 regular annual subscription. The code is good till the 19th.
