One small step....

......on the road to becoming a genealogist?

Like many ageing genealogists I despair of what might happen to all my precious files, certificates and photos when I pass on.

A photo posted on Facebook earlier today has given me some hope.

The Blazer
My daughter has demonstrated a nostalgic tendency by posting this image of her old school blazer and some other photos of treasures on Facebook and Instagram. I left this comment on her photo " The first step on the road to becoming a genealogy junkie is reminiscing about old things and days gone by."

If I remember correctly I was her age when I started dabbling in genealogy. I do hope she has the genealogy gene.

PS. Daughter, if you read this - please don't dispose of the Blazer.

In my case the genealogy gene was definitely passed from mother to daughter. Having two generations of genealogy enthusiasts is always a help :) I hope your daughter discovers how fun genealogy is.

I smile --- and hope--for me too.
