I may be somewhat new to genealogy, but I am certainly not new to research. I've always been the researching, analytical type. In school, I loved research papers, while most (if not all) of my classmates loathed them. It must have something to do with the thrill of finding the pieces to the puzzle and putting them all together into something that makes sense.
My love of research is probably one of the reasons I signed up to be a volunteer with Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK). I may not be finding all the pieces and putting them together, but I am helping someone find a piece or two that will help them put the puzzle together.
