Creativegene's post Genealogy As Therapy.
A very lovely post that certainly has followers commenting. I am up, it is 4:30 am, The house is still dark except for the glow of the PC monitor, the house is hush except for the hum of the hard drive, the refrigerator running, and the tap tap tapping of the keyboard. Occasionally a hear a car on another block of an early worker. I am reading genealogy blogs.
This part of my day is like reading long rambling heart felt letters of dear friends far away.
The genealogy research part is like reading books. Sometimes mysteries, sometime family saga, sometimes history. All my favorite kinds of books.
My husband enjoys me being in the same room as he, while I do my genealogy. Comforting, instead of two old people sitting while the woman knits, this old lady yarns tales.
The writing, the remembering, the recalling of things, events or people of the past that you had not thought about in year, the sharing these memories with others also is so revealing.
Even the taxing of your brain to learn new software, review and compare documents, search for resources stimulates and focuses the brain.
Great post to share
