The Analyzer: This genealogist finds a new fact, then studies it and analyzes it carefully before moving on to the next bit of research. They use each fact as a stepping stone to more research. They verify every piece of information they find and they view it critically, thinking about what it actually means and what other clues might be gleaned from it.
“Genealegitimate? (You know what: an adjective referring to a credible family history with cited, documented sources.) I claim the word if not heretofore appropriated and propose to use it extensively in my own blog and anywhere I can throw it.”
