A-Z Challenge 2014: X is for eXpert
Yes, that's right, I said eXpert.  Because that's what you are becoming. Because that's what you are.  Don't believe anyone who seems to know it all.  There's always something else to learn.  Thomas MacEntee of calls himself a 'genealogy ninja'... (don't you just love that?) It's like the people who say they have traced their ancestry back to Adam and Eve. Yeah, riiiiiight.

So don't be put off and think you are a hopeless case, and you don't know anything.  Everyone starts with a blank piece of paper.  And, since you have been following my posts this month, now you know more than the next guy, don't you?  You know what it means to be half-baptised.  You're starting to save your pennies so you can go to Rootstech next year.  In the meantime, you will be attending webinars, talking to elderly relatives, trying your hand at indexing, formatting your queries - and so on.  Friends and acquaintances will look at you in awe at your new-found knowledge (well, I think it's awe LOL).

And, of course, you will be backing up your data - or syncing it - or both.


  1. A great post for X and I do enjoy your style of writing.

  2. I certainly have learnt a lot following your blog through the A to Z Challenge - many, many thanks for all your useful postings.

  3. The celebrities on Who Do You Think You Are pretty much start with nothing, too. It's amazing how that builds.

  4. Yes you have given so much info that I will be re-looking(is that a word?? oh well who cares) at your blog list and making notes and checking things out in greater detail
