Welcome to the Reluctant Genealogist
I guess you could call this a Mission Statement.
The Reluctant Genealogist is not about genealogy. It’s about family stories. The stories that explain your genealogy. The stories that look beyond the photos in an old dusty scrapbook, the souvenirs from a long forgotten County Fair, or a bundle of letters sent home from a lonely GI.
It’s about discovering how to save and share your family history.
What’s my mission? To encourage, persuade and yes, guilt you into making a video of your family history.
Do you remember an old relative from when you were young, maybe a Great Grandparent? Wouldn’t it be great to hear and see that person today? If someone had been able to record them, you’d be able to… just like years from now your future family will be able to see and hear long gone relatives…if you make the video.
This is my mission I hope you’ll join me on it.
