Way back in 2012 Lorine from the Olive Tree Genealogy blog described several types of Genealogist. I have been slowly adding these to the Geneadictionary.
Do you fit this description?
The Scholar: This genealogist lives and breathes source citations. Accuracy is everything to this research. You’ll often find this person submitting articles to scholarly journals as the NYGBR. Page after page of red edit marks don’t intimidate them, they’ll plow through their article drafts, refining and revising and making each more accurate than the last.
