Generosity Through Genealogy

Here is a little reminder of how 99% of genealogists are generous by helping others find their families, along with sharing their research. I will probably write a blog post about the 1%~~listing some of my genealogical peeves in the near future. (Or when I really become annoyed. lol  🙂 )

Genealogy is about sharing, learning, and giving. Discovering and sharing your family history with others will help you experience a peace within you and a gift to pass to your children.

• Volunteer to go out to cemeteries and take pictures for other researchers
• Do lookups at the library for out of town researchers
• Help others start to research their family history
Join a heritage or lineage society that supports the local community

    We have found that most people involved with genealogy are very friendly and helpful. My wife was trying to find some info on her great, great, grandfather, she found that he was from Iowa so she called the library in the town where he was from and they put her in touch with a lady from around there who works with genealogy. This person research and found where he was buried at and thanks to her when we visited the area my wife was able to visit the grave site and also found more info on her relatives.

      It is always so nice to have helpful librarians and county clerks to help us along with our research! If you have family here in Elkhart County, Indiana and vicinity, and need someone to look stuff up for you, let me know and I’ll be happy to help you out, too!! To me, that’s the best part of researching~~~helping others out when they need some guidance and/or “a hand”. Also, thanks for leaving a reply!! I just love reading what others have to say!!
