April A-Z Challenge: W is for WHY family history fascinates me
Just for a change, I’ve decided to do something different with the letter W. Following below is an excerpt from a previous post with a few changes just to update time frames.
I’m fascinated with family history and genealogy,a subject that most of my friends and family consider, well, just plain boring. I fell into recording my family history by accident about 15 years ago, when I was asked to help organise a family reunion.
As the reunion was not for my own family, I was able to take it all in, without worrying about the work and research that needed to be done. But I was hooked. And now all these years later, the never ending task of researching and recording the many branches and twigs on my family tree continues.
There is much more to the story of my family history beginnings. but this bare bones snippet will do for this post.
