Wright Family

Well, yesterday was last post on the "Wright" line of my family - that's I mean the information I have available. Not sure where I'll go next week but in the meantime you may want to check out MyTrees - either to search for your own family, upload your family information to the database, or you might even want to join the affiliate program there. I, Faith, can tell you this is one of the few affiliate programs I've found online that does actually pay.
