I wasn't all that interested in my genealogy. I've known what my parents told me, and what other family members had to say pro or con. A friend who is into genealogy offed to look at records for me, and worked up a big packet of stuff - which didn't quite match what I remember my father saying (he being the more data inclined of my parents). I did learn a bunch of new stuff that I'm sure of now because of her searches, and she/her research is likely right vs. the family story.
Another family member did - now many years ago - some research via a Mormon site. I take that with a grain of salt too. My friend found more..
Anyway, my friend researched various genealogy websites. I should mention that she's one of the smarter people I've ever known, and well practiced in doing genealogy searches.
This is now also something like ten or fifteen years ago, and there may be better sites out there now - so, check out some sites yourself first.
There are probably websites out there just on how to do genealogy research.
I would look around a bit before using some firm or website in an ad..
There ya' go, good hobby for you, Tak!
