Looking up family history can be very exciting even if you think your family is boring. It is kind of like going on a big treasure hunt except you have no idea where this treasure hunt will end. A family history hunt is not only free but can be very rewarding and can provide for some delightful surprises. This can even be an activity to do when you’re bored with the kids on a rainy Sunday.
Genealogy is a popular hobby. Who doesn’t want to know a little bit about their family’s past? It’s also a hobby that can be intimidating for newcomers, who might hear about census records, research logs, and microfiche and want to run for cover. While some of the more advanced genealogy techniques might scare off the newcomer, beginning the genealogy journey is pretty easy, and begins at home.
