Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.
I've been researching my tree for a few years now and have gained lots of experience with different records, both archive based and online.
I'm also a history graduate - I attended Nottingham Trent University as a mature student and really enjoyed the experience, although it could be quite stressful, especially at exam time.
I've found writing the blog has helped me keep on track with my research, although I do tend to chop and change which branch I'm looking at, depending on what sources are easiest to come by at the time!
This blog will also include any interesting or amusing (to me, anyway!) bits and pieces I might find whilst hunting for the ancestors.
This packrat has learned that what the next generation will value most is not what we owned, but the evidence of who we were and the tales of how we loved. In the end, it's the family stories that are worth the storage.
