Week 15 of Abundant Genealogy

Week 15 – Volunteers: Tell us about a volunteer you appreciate. What does this person do for the genealogical community? How has he or she touched your heart? This is your chance to show some love for those who selflessly give their time to family history.

The only volunteers that I have come into contact with were the volunteers at NARA.  Kind, patient, understanding, helpful... everything I could possibly want in a person to help me navigate those archives.  One in particular wouldn't give up until he had the answer on where my ancestors pension file went.  He hated enigma's too.
