My little cousin noticed my filing cabinet with all the pictures and documents neatly stored. She started asking me why I have it and what I use it for.
But as I tried to explain the word “Genealogist” she got confused and didn’t seem to understand what I meant. So after some brainstorming, we went over what a family tree is, the pictures of our family tree, and what a genealogist is. So here are the things we came up with.
– A Genealogist is like a detective. They search for clues in order to solve the mystery of our family tree.
– A Genealogist is a person who travels into history to get the story about their family.
– A Genealogist loves photos because they give the story of the family tree in pictures
– A Genealogists’ work is never done because a family tree is never done.
Even though my little cousin is only 6, I am already recruiting her for genealogy. I am so excited – hopefully she can be the person I pass all my work to once I can’t do research anymore.
Okay…this cold is really getting rather ridiculous. I want to stay up and research and get started on those games but I have this stupid cold and I can’t stay awake for long. My head just might explode….
Hopefully I’ll be feeling better tommorrow and I’ll be back on track with those games.
