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.
In Salt Lake City with one of my Fave Aussie NextGens, Caitlin Gow.
The 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.
Thanks to Lorine for granting permission to use her definitions.
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?
