Here’s Randy’s challenge for this week:
- Identify one genealogist that you would like to meet. The person could be living or deceased.
- Why do you want to meet with this person?
- What would you talk about? What questions would you ask this person?
- Write about your choice on your blog or in Comments to this post.
This is actually a little hard to answer. Personally, through blogging and Facebook, I feel like I’ve already “met” many great genealogists. There are many that I follow in order to learn from, and others I befriend because they’re wonderful people and we share a passion for genealogy.
But there are a select few that I would love to meet in person and have face-time with. They are:
Sheri Fenley – I love Sheri’s sense of humor. She’s a wonderful Facebook/blogging friend and I’d love the opportunity to meet her in the “real world.” Pull out the Scrabble board, Sheri…I’m coming! :)
Colleen McHugh – Another great Facebook/blogging buddy. I love her passion for genealogy and the fact that she has Irish roots like me.
Randy Seaver – A wonderful man with a huge passion for genealogy. I’d love to just sit down and learn from him.
Thomas MacEntee – Thomas is just a lovable guy and a great Facebook/blogging buddy. He and I share a passion for the “technology” side of genealogy. I’m sure there’s much more I could learn from him.
footnoteMaven – Need I say more?
Maureen Taylor – The true Photo Detective, what wonderful things I could learn from her to aid in my love of old photographs.
There you have it!
