it’s Saturday Night again,
time for more Genealogy Fun!
Your mission this week, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) What is the most wild, crazy, off-the-wall, or really stupid thing you have done in pursuit of your ancestral families and their family history?
2) Tell us about it in your own blog post, a comment to this post, or a comment or status on Facebook.
Well, defining ‘most wild, crazy, off-the-wall, or really stupid thing’ may differ from person to person. For an introvert who was not very fond of English classes, just writing this blog is somewhat ‘off-the-wall’. Towards the end of my teaching career, I was amazed at how much writing I was doing when I didn’t like to write in high school. I will admit that the vast majority of the writing during my career would be considered ‘technical writing.’
Looking back, however, I would have to say my two trips to Salt Lake City would qualify as crazy for introvert me. Can you imagine getting on a bus for a 10 day trip by yourself when you don’t know anyone else on said bus? Thankfully, everyone on that bus had something in common — genealogy. And our ‘entertainment’ was spending as many hours as possible in the library. Not only did I take one trip but I also ventured out and took a second trip — again without knowing anyone but the tour director. Would I do something similar again? I don’t know. With the right destination, I just might.
I love your wild and crazy trip! That was very adventurous – very different than flying there and checking into a hotel.
