When it can be sad to update a family tree

When it can be sad to update a family tree

A Tyrrell died this October. One of my dad’s cousins.

Usually adding information to a family tree or database is a happy event. A new baby, a new spouse or partner, even the end of a marriage or partnership can be events that are cheerfully added. Deaths, however, are not so cheerful. Even finding the important death dates and burial locations for long-lost and newly-discovered ancestors are somewhat somber events.
I hope there are many stories told and recorded at the memorial. Rest in Peace, Ginger.
