5 Signs You Are a Genealogist

It’s going to be a busy day so I share with you this thought – how many of the above five signs do you see in yourself? I had to chuckle because these describe me so well. Ritchey and I have planned many vacations in the last 20 years around which cemeteries we would visit – there have been many vacations that was the main objective – to visit cemeteries and photograph gravestones. I have been most fortunate in my husband, not many would be excited enough to help me with my genealogy goals. He has held up stones so I can get a good picture, put the top back on a stone that is cracked, taken his share of photos, ate lunches in the cemetery with me. When in a library I have my list of searches, he goes and just ‘looks’ and comes up with such interesting tidbits. So here’s to my hubby!

  1. I do look forward to your emails!! I read them knowing that one day, I’ll see the name Talbott or Lancaster.

    Because of the pandemic, and my husbands health issues, we stayed isolated from everyone for 15 months. Genealogy became a new hobby; and saved my sanity!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

    You are so very fortunate that your husband shares your love of genealogy!
