Week 35: Genealogy Friends. Genealogy friends are wonderful people. Don’t you agree? Tell us about a genealogy friend in your life. How did you meet? Do you share any common ancestors or research interests?
I feel like a school kid writing this. You know BFF's and all that. However, those feelings aside, I have a very close and dear friend who lives just an hour from here that I call and email with all my genealogy stuff. Besides, it is all her fault I am into this like I am. She has set the example to me, got me started, talk through problems, loaned me books, and so much more.
She was one of the very first people I met when we moved to this area. We have kids about the same ages, who seem to get along with one another. That and we share a lot of the same hobbies and interests. Our friendship just kept blooming!
As of right now, she and I don't have any ancestors in common. However, she and my husband do have some colonial New England links. This I find highly entertaining. We are both very intrigued by genetic genealogy and have talked for many hours over the phone about the findings we have each had through testing.
