And I adore genealogy.
My family is — sometimes– fascinated by it. At least my husband is. I’m grateful he listens to the stories of my successes in researching new family history lines.
And they are bored by it. That would be my kids. Especially ‘the son.’ The daughter actually says that when I’m dead and gone, she’ll “keep it going.” Hallelujah! My heart sings when I hear that.
Often, they are sick of seeing me spend countless hours at the computer with Family Tree Maker on the screen and a research log open.
Of course, I’ve saved my son’s school grades a few times when he needed to quickly come up with family history records for a class research paper. Otherwise, he can’t figure out why I “chase dead relatives.”
When I’m not chasing dead relatives, I’m meeting living ones all over the world. I have lots of places to visit and lots of cousins to meet. In Scotland. In England. In Puerto Rico. In Virginia and Texas and California.
