Listing to What Our Ancestors have to Say
Maybe it was the changing colors in the trees, the cooler temperatures or it was just the talk of decorating our home for Halloween. I couldn’t help myself; maybe it’s that time of year…Halloween, I’m getting into the spirit! Last week I was helping at a school PTO book fair, I was asked what I did for a living. I couldn’t resist, I told them; I talk to dead people for a living. There was such a mix of expressions that came over their faces. I couldn’t keep a straight face and started laughing.
Remember What You Say
I’m sure some of you have heard of or watched TV shows like “Ghost Hunters“. If so then you’ve noticed they are always out to do is debunk the stories they are told. They are looking for the facts, the truth. That is exactly what we do in the world of genealogy we hunt for the facts, the truth. Along the way we listen to what the spirits, ancestors, are telling us, research the facts and debunk any misconceptions that have been told. So see we do talk to ghost, spirits what ever you choose to call them. Even when it’s not Halloween. By the way I did tell them that I’m a genealogist, just in case you were wondering.
