Those Collaterals Are Worth the Time and Effort
As time has passed, my research time has diminished. That extra time used here and there to add collateral individuals became a hindrance to me. While I would still add the in-laws, I might not add all the cousins especially if I had to put any extra effort into identifying them.
Last month I uploaded my RAW DNA data from Ancestry.com to Gedmatch.com. When I started receiving emails from possible matches I saw right away that I need more collaterals! Finding that common ancestor can be tricky and having more individuals to work with will be helpful.
Now, on to add more aunts, uncles, cousins and cousins cousins to my tree.
