I am from Utah, Lived in Southern California for 25 Years, I have spent 30 Plus years doing Family History, I love the work and even the challenges of putting difficult families together. I am a Professional Genealogist with Genealogy Pox, and now reside back in Utah, and love love love Family History.

I have worked in two Family History Centers, Mission Viejo Family History Center and Laguna Niguel Family History Center One of the most satisfying things about doing family history work is serving others in the same capacity. It's so thrilling to help my friends and neighbors discover their pasts.

WARNING: Genealogy Pox (very contagious to adults). SYMPTOMS: Continual complaint as to need for names, dates, and places. Patient has a blank expression. Sometimes deaf to spouse and children. Has no taste for work of any kind, feverishly looking through records at libraries and courthouses. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote, desolate areas. Has strange faraway look in eyes. No known cure!

TREATMENT: Medication is useless. Disease isn't fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner of the house where he or she can be alone.

REMARKS: The unusual nature of this disease is: the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!

As I have said above, there is no cure for this disease; so here are four ways to embrace it:

1. You feel a connection with those that have gone before.
2. You can help others with their family histories.
3. Pictures really are worth a thousand words.
4. You can catch the "pox" of family history.
Whether you do a little or a lot, researching family history needs to be done. Call up you parents and grandparents, ask them questions about their lives and record or write them down. Congratulations, you are one step closer to catching Genealogy Pox!

I have Genealogy Pox so bad I work on different families every day...

I have always edited many entries on Find A Grave, but just recently added a few Memorials myself, of my family...
