NextGen

A blog post from one of my young genimates this morning reminded me of those genies who are NextGen. These NextGen folk are the future of genealogy.

The NextGen Genealogy Network page tells me that NextGen are “young genealogists eighteen to fifty”.

I am thrilled to be an online genimate of so many of these clever, committed younger folk. Check out some of their profiles here.

The Hunter or Detective

detectiveThe Hunter or Detective: This genealogists  loves the research. While they want to find their own ancestors, they’ll research anyone’s ancestry just for the thrill of the hunt. They are easily sidetracked from their own ancestral research by the challenge of solving a stranger’s brick wall.

Senealogist

I am not known for my keyboarding skills and, this morning, when typing Genealogist I made an error and keyed in Senealogist. It struck me that I had found a very pertinent word for the Geneadictionary, one that describes many enthusiasts.

I was referred to as an “older lady”in a blog post from Andy Lee this week!

I am a Senealogist – how about you? 

Senealogist – A Senior Citizen who engages in the hobby/pastime/passion/obsession of genealogy.

The Analyzer

Lorine from the  Olive Tree Genealogy blog described several types of Genealogist in 2012. Perhaps you are an Analyzer.
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.

The Junkyard Collector

Lorine from the  Olive Tree Genealogy blog described several types of Genealogist in 2012. I will publish each of these profiles over the next few months. Do you exhibit the traits of this one?
The Junkyard Collector: This genealogist gets excited over online Family Trees and merges them with his/her own. He/she never verifies anything or checks their facts. Before long they have a mess of unsourced information, conflicting data and facts that don’t make sense. They’ll have female ancestors having children at the age of 100, or men born 50 years after their spouse or children born before their parents.
