Late Night Genealogies, my foray into blogging

Late Night Genealogies, a blog for the weary-eyed, head scratching genealogist.

In other words, me.

I've decided that I would like to start a blog. This is nothing new as I signed up on Blogger a couple of years ago, but have been reluctant to find my genealogy blogger's voice. I have also waited in the metaphorical library stacks to develop some assurance that I have something to offer the genealogical community

I'm not sure of that, yet.

What I do know is this: I have a passion for dead people. Alright, so that sounds a bit borderline creepy. What I should say is that I am drawn to boxes of old documents, cemeteries and library stacks. I enjoy spending time in rooms with no windows and lots of paper records. I'm at my best with a camera, a laptop and a mission. I'm what James Bond wants to be, a researcher on the go and filled with a gleam in his eye.

Maybe it's a bit over the top. I don't envision myself as a Bond-like character in a cheesy B-movie, in some distant, snow-laden compound armed with the latest tech gadgets. However, I am your average researcher, armed with a multitude of tools to seek out my ancestors and to interrogate them as best I can.

I am a genealogist and I am now a blogger.


  1. Kim, welcome to the world of geneablogging! I'm sure you will find your blogging voice. And I don't think having a passion for dead people is creepy at all!


  2. I, too, am drawn to boxes of old documents, cemeteries and library stacks, but I do find I wish more libraries put windows in their genealogy rooms. Welcome to geneablogging!
