How Boring Is This???
I have often heard people complain genealogy is boring and meaningless.
When I went to update my sweet 16. I had to agree!! This post is boring!!!! To find and post these dates and locations represents years of work, collaboration of dozens of people, and great dedication.
BUT THIS IS BORING!!!!
I can see why many bloggers take one name at a time and "tell their story". This may count as genealogy. But this is not my genealogy.
