One of my favorite hobbies is genealogy. I love finding out about my family. I also enjoy watching "who do you think you are" on NBC. I had stopped doing it this last year because I was so busy and genealogy research can take a lot of time. But one of the really cool things about where I live is that I am with in driving distance to some of the counties and states where my ancestors lived. In fact I just need to go to a neighboring county and I can go through their archives and try to find my ancestor. (I'm at a point in most of my research- that a lot of what I want isn't online yet). I've been out of the loop though for the last year so I was surprised by the various site updates, and page layouts that are better and different. Seeing the 1930 and 1940 Census' online was cool but that is too recent for most of my research. I need older documents. I did find some new names today on my ex's family (for my daughters trees).
So long story short it's time to get back to my hobby!
