Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - "I Like To Do It"

Hey genea-philes, it's Saturday Night - time for more Genealogy Fun!!!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  A Facebook meme for women went viral this week - the "I Like It" meme, for Cancer Awareness Month, which garnered responses like "I Like It ... On the Couch" or "I Like it ... on the Table."  The subject was "purse" - where to put their purse.  The mind boggled for awhile with some of the responses from supposedly proper genealogy ladies.

2)  Please write an "I Like To Do It" post where "It" = "genealogy research" someplace and why.

3)  Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, in a comment or note on Facebook.

Here's mine:

"I like doing genealogy research at the Family History Library."  Who in the world wouldn't like that?  All of those microfilms of original records, plus the books and manuscripts on the shelves, with scores of subject matter experts close by for consultations.  And Pearl, the 95-year old helper at the microfilm scanner machines to make you save your images to a flash drive correctly and quickly!

Edited 9 p.m.:  Added the note about Cancer Awareness Month, thank you, Lyn, for the information trhat I missed somehow.

Only one response to this, Randy. I like doing genealogy research at home in my jammies with whatever music I'm in the mood for blasting from the speakers and a bowl of cheez-its at my side. Heaven.

Randy, Did you miss the point of the "I like it on the ___" postings by women on FaceBook? The intent was to bring attention to the fact it's cancer awareness month.

Lyn, duh, did I miss something? Nobody told me that! Oh well, it seemed like a fun thing to do at the time.

I guess I should have noted that males could talk about where they wanted a prostate exam, eh?

Seriously, I edited the post to note Cancer Awareness Month. thank you for the heads-up.

I have a bumper sticker on my car that says "Genealogists do it in the library."
