I’m a librarian by profession, and I’ve discovered that there are many similarities between genealogists and librarians. A taste for the thrill of the information hunt is probably the most obvious trait in common.
In the last few years, I’ve restarted the genealogical adventures that I haven’t worked on much since high school (full disclosure: that was quite a while ago). I think I have a greater appreciation for it now that I know more about my family and about the places and times they lived.
My hope is that blogging about what I’m turning up (or not turning up) will help me with my own research and maybe help someone else with theirs. And perhaps turn up a cousin or two.
