I get so excited when I find out a new detail or discover a long lost aunt/uncle/cousin! My kids have come to expect when I mention "picnic" that we are packing lunch and a camera and notebook and hitting a cemetery. I enjoy sitting in the basement of the library or the side room at the historical society squinting at microfilm machines and feeling thankful that they accept checks for copies since I will inevitably not bring enough cash.
Genealogy is like a puzzle. Whether you enjoy a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle or the New York Times crossword puzzle, we have something in common then!
