|If my great grandmother Theresa Bowe |
wants to be listed on my Certificate of Heritage,
she had better lead me to her birth records real quick!
Come on, Theresa, where are you??
Although I am somewhat sceptical about the value of this certificate and the point of getting one, I am guessing that, one day soon, I will be visiting the site with my credit card because I just can't resist having one. I just love my family history records and certificates and can't help pursuing one more! A note to early Christmas shoppers: you will be able to purchase Heritage Certificate gift cards for others. They must supply their own documentation, however.
