Want to learn about your genealogy? A Virginia man compiles area resources. - The Washington Post

Want to learn about your genealogy? A Virginia man compiles area resources. - The Washington Post

After reading this article, here are some key themes I latched onto:
  •  The interaction between generations: A man helps his son with a homework assignment and discovers an avenue of interest for life.
  • Where would we genealogists be without volunteers, without those who've gone beyond their own research to compile resources for a community and beyond?
  • The "Virginia man", Harold McLendon, has affiliated with a local genealogical society.  He has become a valuable member of that society; the association has been good to him and he has reciprocated.  
Read the article and let me know what you get out of it.  Are there people like this in your community?  How does your commitment to genealogy enriched the life and research of others?
