Hello my Forum friends,

What influence do your partners play on your research.

I admit that my dearest wife was feeling a bit 'left out' tonight. So, I signed off and out and payed more attention to her.

Do partners (men and women) 'understand' what you are doing. Or do they curse the day that you started.

She has now gone to bed, so must be quick.

Any comments on this.??

(Pssssstt. don't let them see this post):)

I am an avid genealogist and that can annoy my family that I seem to spend more time on "Dead people" than I do with ones that are alive. I always seem to be on the computer.

I research my ancestors in DetaiL from their date of birth to knowing the architecture of their dwellings. I go way beyond establising dates and events. I build up a very colourful family tree on my ancestors.
