Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
It's all my mother's fault!!! She tried to get me involved in her genealogical research when I was a kid. (She dragged me to cemeteries, etc. and bored me further by talking with my grandmother about genealogy.) I wasn't interested then, but when she resumed her studies (in April, with the release of the 1940 census), she got me hooked BIG TIME! I haven't been conducting my own research for very long, but I have a good foundation to work with. (Thanks, Ma!) Our current system works well for us: Ma researches her side of the family tree while I work on my paternal side.
