30 Days/30 Things - Day 20

"A hobby of yours

Easy peasy. Genealogy/Family History.

God, I love it. I spend more time and money than is sensible on it but I just can't get enough. I find it thoroughly fascinating - it makes me feel that much closer to my ancestors just to know their names, their occupations, where they lived... It's a proper addiction for me that can easily see me sitting up way past midnight and then lying in bed at night wondering about how to solve a mystery.

I've been working on my family tree since 2007 and am doing Mr M's at the same time. Strangely I am just as excitable and enthusiastic about his family tree as I am my own. Maybe it has something to do with having children - after all his ancestors are my children's ancestors.

If you've never delved into your family tree, I wholeheartedly recommend it, but prepared to be sucked in!

love & kisses

  1. Ah, very ineresting! My uncle is mad about family trees too - he gave us all a copy of all the info he had found out, it really is fascinating! I love the "Heir Hunters" programme too, where they try and trace lost relatives :)


I always like to hear your thoughts, so please do leave a comment!
