An active pursuit

A very thought-provoking article . . .

While the variety of televised programs about family history have certainly increased interest in the hobby, I fear that it has begun to supply a skewed approach to genealogical research. So many of these shows show others doing the research for the person, and then making the big reveal, that more often than not we find visitors to the NEHGS Research Center here in Boston expecting us to do the actual research for them.

Read it all at Vita Brevis. What does genealogical research mean to you? Add your thoughts in the comments.
