Incurable genealogy nut! Since retirement in 2010, I spend an average of 12-16 hours daily helping others research. Prior to retirement, my average daily research was approximately 6-8 hours. I've been at this for more than 17 years and have in excess of 8,000 message board responses. There are others with similar and even greater experience and contributions. This is called a "community" and as in the "real world" community, neighbors volunteer for the good and protection of their fellows. I researched everything shared on this board.
