Only in Genealogy

Do people wait in line and pay good money for a document that not only is over 100 years old, but has no bearing whatsoever on their own situation in life .

Linda gave the example of obtaining a probate record for ancestors we never met. The same could be said for the quest to obtain birth, marriage, and death certificates.

I thought I was the only one who went out of his way to investigate every cemetery I saw. We were once locked in a civil war cemetery in Atlanta. Oh what great times.
