I've been doing it since about 1980 - taking some longish periods off, but the always coming back to it. I often randomly ask people if I can do their families - just to have a different challenge.
Mostly England and Scotland. A little bit of Irish and an even smaller bit of French/French Canadian. While doing my kids - through their father's side I think I've got an Ontario family that identifies as German.
I have a couple of brick walls that I'd love to push through some day. One being my gg-grandmother - can't find her birth cert or her parent's marriage (probably Quebec).
just love making those connections with people from other eras.
During the summer I can probably do daytime meetings, but starting in September I would only be able to make evening or weekend meetings.
I grew up in Burnaby and now live in Coquitlam. I did live for a few years in Calgary and for a shorter time in Toronto. Genealogy is a serious addiction for me!
