Jumping right in…

What has always been a challenge for me with blogging is knowing where to start. Genealogy has been part of my life since I was a kid. The resources available back then were limited by my age and lack of funds to get records. Today, I don’t have those tethers.

The biggest obstacle to my genealogy wanderings today is the structure of life. I have to work for a living and I have people and pets that need me present. I spend time with genealogy only a few hours a week. But, it allows me to get back into learning more about my family line.

I view genealogy like a giant jigsaw puzzle. You can have only a few pieces of a puzzle but start getting an idea of what the puzzle picture really is. As you add more pieces to the puzzle, you may find your initial idea was right. Or you may find it is wrong. Each puzzle piece adds something to the picture that is emerging. You may never find all the puzzle pieces. The fun is in the hunt for them.
