My mother would answer questions and tell me stories about her family, but other than that she didn't want to know. Until I found her GG-grandparents, and her illegitimate uncle. Then she got quite keen.

Hi

My other half is amazed that i know more about his family than he actually does and he sometimes looks interested when i find another one!

My husband says I am obsessed with dead people.  I have often wished he'd get interested but no luck and now it's too late as we are separating anyway!  ;D  One time we were wondering what to give his mother for her 60th birthday, and he said "I know!  You can research her family tree!"  I said "In three months???"    :o

 Have you thought of putting in the surname and do a search throught Google etc, I did this with the Grunefeld name and then sent off emails explaining what I was doing, I ended up with 2 families with their tree to add to mine, it grew from around 50 ppl within a week to over 300 ppl on it. Might have to try that with my father's side and see what happens.

Would you believe I have only ever done one graveyard search and I made the huge mistake of taking the worse half with me!   I located the right area of the cemetery and started walking up and down the rows.   Hubby became self-appointed Director of Operations and started telling me I was in the wrong place, etc.   After nearly an hour of this he suddenly asked "what are we looking for?"

It was probably the most disastrous day I have ever had, but I won't bore you with the rest of the details!
