Today, I am thankful for the family members who are helpful and encouranging in my genealogy research. In the beginning, it was difficult. I had one parent ask me, “Why do you want to know?”; “Its none of your business.” However, they quickly changed their mind when I found a nugget of information that push my family back a generation or two. They got bit by the bug and now works on their side of the family.
Even though that was years ago, there are times even now when some family members who aren’t helpful. Is it frustrating? Yes, it is. But I know that I have support from the family members who believe in my quest and support me and my genealogy endevors. It is them that I am thankful for.
