SATURDAY NIGHT GENEALOGY FUN: WHY DO GENEALOGY?

Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun asks this question this
week: "Why Do Genealogy?" :

"1) Think about the question: "Why do I pursue genealogy and family 
history research?"

2) Tell us about it on your own blog post, in a comment to this blog 
post, or in a comment on Facebook."


1. To learn more about those unknown relatives on my Mother's side of
our family.

2. To learn more about the relatives I do know about on my Dad's side,
along with the few who remain a a mystery. I'm talking about you, John
Cutter West. and you, Caleb Coburn's nameless wife!

3. To give me something to do until I figure out how to get my tv to
finally work, and probably even after that!

4. To give me something to talk about at work and bore my coworkers.

5. Finally, because I like it! Try and stop me!

Bill, I am forever boring my family and co-workers with genealogy stories too!


Keep up the great work!

I love it, especially the idea of boring coworkers. I just bore family currently, but I may expand!
