It works with all ages
Although Dad has some great scholarly research skills, he hasn't been all that interested in genealogy. But he was quite impressed. How could you not be when you are looking at signatures and wax seals that date from before the time of the American Revolution--who are related to you. I talked about it more on my Chart Chick blog. I think Dad was impressed.
I was amazed at how settled I felt this time as we left the area. The first time I went I longed to share it with my family members. Now that I've taken my Dad and my children--the other descendants of this line, I feel completed, like I'm ready to move on to another line. Mom and I are already planning a trip to work on her lines as well--so that's something to look forward to. What a great adventure family history is. Something deep in your stomach or your chest that feels good. What an important thing to give to the next generation.
