It’s been awhile. My first couple of days back at Family Tree Magazine HQ after the past few months just taking care of this little guy
(look at those chubby little cheeks!) have been a whirlwind of figuring out where our projects are and what’s going on in the genealogy world.
Here’s what my lovely coworkers had waiting for me on my first day back:
I’ve eaten, slept and breathed family history for the past seven and a half years on staff at Family Tree Magazine. That’s in my job description.
But while I was on maternity leave, my genealogy life was a lot more like yours: Reading news blogs and searching online databases when I had a few minutes, finding someone to watch the baby while I squeezed in trips to the FamilySearch Center (baby Leo even accompanied me on a short microfilm-requesting stop). I’d watch “Who Do You Think You Are?” on Hulu in the middle of the night while I was up with the baby.
I’ll do another post about what I discovered on that FamilySearch microfilm. But I definitely feel more one with you!
I hope you can offer some advice: How do you fit genealogy into your everyday life? When do you squeeze in your online and library research? Thanks!
