GETTING TO KNOW A GENEALOGIST…
Genealogists are the people who track down or examine the descent of persons or families – in short, they are the people who perform genealogy research. They typically use a variety of either public or private records like immigration records, tax records, court records, and original tax books.
This is done to track down or fill in the family trees and /or descendants. They serve as a consultant for their clients and both advice and embark lines of research.
· A new morning means new discoveries
For genealogists, a new morning means a new day that will either be filled with full of discoveries or non-stop work. It’s like the continuation of the trail they’re taking to achieve a certain goal. They take every morning as their new hope for more achievements and progress in their work.
· A cup of tea or a mug coffee to kick-start the day
Like other people, genealogists also have something to fuel them up before they battle with what lies ahead on each day. They can either go for a cup of coffee or tea. Or some will just go for a hot chocolate drink to awaken their sleeping cells.
· A generous meal to awaken the mind and body
Since genealogy requires a lot of time and effort to succeed in the field, genealogists also fuel themselves with a generous amount of meal. This is to have something to keep their body in shape and their mind in its utmost state.
· In the mid-morning, the mind starts working
Usually, in the mid-morning, the genealogists’ playful and creative mind starts to get to work. It begins to do brainstorming, solving cases in their minds, analysing gathered data and information. Just imagine finding people you’ve never met, or solving cases of other families? Hmmm, sound very interesting.
· …curiosity never leaves their mind
Keeping their minds at work is a normal thing for genealogists. And that’s why it’s also usual that curiosity never leaves their mind. Do you ever wonder what’s on their minds? It could be their client’s cases or their still “unsolved” cases.
· A huge wave of excitement for new findings
Like how kids feel for their new discoveries in life, genealogists also feel a huge wave of excitement towards discovering something new. It could be finishing their tasks, or solving family secrets and/or issues of a certain client, figuring out new data or information, and so on and so forth.
· Non-stop phone calls, talks, and so on
One of the most common things that you’ll find genealogists doing is a non-stop phone call, talks with their clients, and so on. You know, they’re really or considerably one of the busiest people in the professional world.
· Mixed emotions are always present
Genealogists always find something about families which they aren’t related to. That’s why it’s reasonable for them to have mixed emotions in the process of their tasks. They’re one of the few people who know such family secrets or the ones who find out about it. They could be a little surprised, too shocked, or they could feel emotional, or they could feel a little disgrace of unfortunate findings.
