  1. Although I was unable to look up my family on Ancestry.com I was able to look up my husband’s family. I found out when his grandfather immigrated to the U.S. from Switzerland, where he lived, his profession, along with other tidbits. I can honestly say I’m hooked! I guess you can say its sort of like the 19th century version of Facebook!
