Are You My Cousin?: If You Thought Genealogy Was Boring...(Part 2)

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Name:
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

If You Thought Genealogy Was Boring...(Part 2)

....then:
  • You've never embarrassed yourself by doing the happy dance in the public library. Fortunately, that did not show up as a YouTube video.
  • You've never introduced your cousins to the family tree - in a cemetery!
  • You've never met a gentleman in a rural cemetery early in the morning who just happens to be able to tell you stories of your GGG grandfather.
  • You've never had to "dig up" your great grandfather.  Read more about that here.
Apparently a lot of my "non-boring" experiences happen in cemeteries!  (I won't think too long on that.)

If you missed Part 1 of this series, go here to read more of my "non-boring" genealogy experiences.

Whoa, I've gotta keep this in mind next time I do research at the library ... YouTube ... it could happen. This post hits home!
