This semester I am taking a statistics course that requires that I complete a semester long statistics research study. So as I pondered over possible research questions, I knew it has to relate to genealogy somehow. After discussing some options with my professor, we formulated the following research question:
Are there any differences between beginner, intermediate, and experienced genealogists with regard to the amount of money and types of expenditures they make to research their family tree?
I’m excited because my big semester long project is related to genealogy – and I am actually curious about the results. This project is a fun one to me all because genealogy is included.
So – I am asking all of my genealogy friends to help me out! Please, fill out the two part survey (part 1 and part 2). This survey is entirely anonymous – I never ask for your name. All of your answers are completely confidential, and the only two people who will ever see your individual answers are myself and my professor. However, at the end of my study (at the end of November), I will be posting my conclusions here on my blog. Besides – aren’t you a bit curious about the question?
If you know other genealogists – ask them to participate also. The more answers I get, the better the findings.
So thank you to anyone who has already filled the survey out and thank you to everyone who will fill out the survey. Genealogists truly are the nicest people out there!
Update: Thanks to everyone who told me that the survey closed. I long story short, I fixed the problem.
