"Enthusiastic" Again!

I haven't blogged much in the past five or six months. I went through a significant genealogy "slump" where I wasn't sure I wanted to pursue genealogy any longer. Happily, that phase has passed and I am back!

IGHR - July 2017
This summer, I attended IGHR in Georgia in July. Even while I prepared for my trip, my passion was reignited.

I am currently taking the Boston University (or "BU") course. We just finished the first module, and I've already learned a lot.

I am also reinstating my goal to become a certified genealogist by 2020!

I am, quite happily, "the enthusiastic genealogist" once again!

  5. Enjoy the B.U. class. I completed it this past summer (and stopped blogging because I didn't have the time). Glad to hear you're enthusiastic again!

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth. I'm hoping to continue blogging, but it might be sporadic until BU is done! I'm loving it, but it does take a lot of time.

    1. Thanks, Raul! That was kind of a scary slump. I thought I would never enjoy genealogy again. :)
