I am a Geneaholic

Welcome to my new genealogy blog - dedicated to defining, discussing, and perhaps recovering from, the dreaded obsession to ... genealogy research.

There are people, like me, who live, think and breathe genealogy all day long, almost every day. We love the challenge of being a family history detective - of finding and researching our own ancestors, and helping family, friends and colleagues find their ancestry. Some of us are professionals - take clients, write genealogy articles or books, or teach. I am not a professional in the strict sense of the term - but I aspire to produce an outstanding research product for everyone I work with.

What is the genealogy of the Geneaholic name?

Lee Anders had a blog by that name until recently. She was very kind to offer the domain name of to me when she decided that she no longer wanted to use it. Since I absolutely loved the name from the time she invented it, I leaped at the opportunity. The domain name is parked for awhile until I can put a web page together that does it justice.

Of course, a good web page needs a blog, so I decided to open this blog so that nobody else could grab it and hold it hostage. When the web page goes live, I will probably change the URL of this blog to a web page URL.

I have been genea-blogging since April 2006 at Genea-Musings -, and will continue that effort. If you are interested in genealogy research tips and ancestral stories, please come visit me at Genea-Musings.

Here's a contest: Who will find this blog first? And broadcast it to the genea-blogosphere? The prize? A beautiful certificate from the Geneaholic suitable for framing to recognize your abilities. What - you think I'm rich?
