Back in the fall Mark and I were discussing the genealogy file one night over dinner. What alot of people don't realize is that Mark researches with me. I know alot of men, or significant others who really have no interest in the genealogy research being done in the household. I am blessed in that Mark also enjoys researching!
He isn't a researcher in that he contacts courthouses for documents but he is a "point & shoot" type guy. Give him a specific thing to chase and he's off & running. His favorite thing to chase? Census records!
Okay, you say, he loves to chase census records... but he also loves typing them in! I love the "thrill of the hunt", and I can spend hours chasing long lost ancestors on the census. But I absolutely despise the typing in of those records. Mark on the other hand does both & he does them VERY WELL!
He truly is fearless, no surname is too daunting, no bad handwriting (who better to read bad writing than someone with bad writing? LOL) is too bad, after all he is on the hunt.
Having a husband who loves to type census.... it's a VERY GOOD THING!
