Saturday night genealogy fun - Why I do genealogy.

 Well, it is not quite Saturday night but I am going to accept the challenge Randy Seaver is giving us today. "Why do you do genealogy?"

I am curious. Who were my ancestors? Where did they live? What did they do for a living? What were the highlights and low moments in their lives?
I honour them by telling their stories.
It gives me a connection to the past. It makes history more interesting.
I enjoy the research. It is also good for the mind. I think that is one of the reasons I do research for others.
I am also finding that I get great satisfaction in writing the stories and sharing the information.
I have made some great friends with others who do genealogy and I have met a few distant cousins along the way.
Genealogy is more fun than housework.
