It’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with genealogy extraordinaire – Randy Seaver — and tonight’s mission, should I decide to accept it is determining: What Type of Genealogist I Am!
I’ve decided to accept this mission and here is my assignment (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1) Read Lorine McGinnis Schulze’s blog post “What Type of Genealogist Are You?” (25 August 2012) and determine which type best describes me:
The Hunter or Detective
The Gatherer or Ancestor Collector
The Ancestor Finder
The Junkyard Collector
2) Answer the question, and write about it!!”

I really like this year’s line-up of presenters and speakers and look forward to seeing as many of them as possible.

But that won’t be the case for me this season!

Meetings begins at 10 AM, doors open at 9 AM. Come early and enjoy the refreshments. Visitors are always welcome!
