No, no one is kidding. I am officially a Family History Specialist. My ancestors are probably, at this moment, rolling over in their graves at the term "specialist"-- hopefully, for their benefit, it is a term of hope for the future. In the mean time I will muddle through, tread water, and do the best I can, in hopes that I don't completely make a mess of things.
I will be working in the Family History Library in the Hollister Church Building every Tuesday from noon to 3:00... come see me, and I will help you find your long lost relatives. OK,give me a month or so... maybe by then I'll be a "specialist".
