​Recently someone who does family history asked, ” why we continue to do it when others (in family) show no interest?” My Response: We do this for ourselves first I believe. If others show interest all the better but it should not be expected or be the reason we do family history research. It is a passion or need for those who do it, so I do understand your frustrations (as I faced that in the past). Now I do it to learn and the discovery. Also a community of others doing the same passion  makes it better. So keep your passion going and share with us, fellow researchers. Great question.
