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.
