High Energy Genealogy

Newport Creamery Coffee Ice Cream, August 2014
Collection of the author, Midge Frazel
Hello, I am Midge Frazel and I am "The Highly Caffeinated Genealogist". This blog is NOT about coffee.

Of course, I am not the only highly caffeinated genealogist, in fact, I know quite a few. In this case, I am really talking about the amount of solid energy a person needs to be a genealogist or family historian.

This month I celebrated the 60th year of knowing and learning about ancestors. I was nearly eight years old. I have written about that story before so I won't repeat it here. Even Family Tree Magazine published it in their magazine! My own story amazes even me. But, you have a story too. 

I have worked on the ancestors off and on all of this time. In the past twenty years, I have done more work that the forty before that.

I think it is time to put my thoughts and ideas down for other to read and talk to me about. Since this doesn't fit in my other two blogs about gravestones and technology, I am starting this new one. Expect the positive and the negative. They go together.

My first task will be to write about my recent experience at a regional genealogy conference. I have been putting short thoughts out on Facebook, to test how useful they may be for others to read. I will be repeating that here to get started.

But, first, I need a cup of coffee...
