After having my own Saturday night genealogy fun with the aforementioned spam, here is the real deal: Randy Seaver's Genea-Musings Saturday Night Genealogy Fun meme. Tonight's instructions:
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) Think about the question: "Why do I pursue genealogy and family history research?"
2) Tell us about it on your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a comment on Facebook
I do it for curiosity. I do it because I like a puzzle. I do it because I like detective work. I do it because I am a born research nerd. I do it because I'm a history buff. I do it because I wanted to know more about the father I hardly knew because he died just after I turned 7 years old. I do it because I wanted to know about the grandparents I never met. I do it because it is fun investigating family stories and finding the facts behind them -- if there are any!
That's why I do it. How about you?
