Last week was a bye week for me, at least from publishing. It’s nice to have a week off now and again. As a genealogist and family historian committed to serious research and writing, I have discovered a gold mine of opportunity for my own family’s research. As I pan the records I am finding a few unknowns throughout the generations. Every time one discovers the maiden name of a female ancestor another vein of treasure opens in the surviving records :-)
This brings to mind the San Francisco 49ers and a quote attributed to Jerry Rice, “… I’m totally committed to the game of football. That’s why I’ve had so much success.”1 I can say the same thing about genealogy and family history :-)
So, how committed are you to genealogy and family history? Have you established your game schedule? Do you show up weekly? Life is full of competing opportunities. Have you found the best game day for the pursuit of your Family History Bowl? Please take a moment to respond to this one question survey. Thank you!
