Genea-Musings: Saturday Night Fun - True Confessions of a Genealogy Junkie: "It's almost Saturday Night here in the West. Let's have a little fun before we go to bed or wherever in the morning. We must be Genealogy Junkies, right (after all, many of you come back every Saturday Night!). How about a True Confessions time, genealogy style?"

: Answer these questions about your genealogy life - Randy Seaver'z of Chula Vista, California, United States are in parentheses:

1. When did you start genealogy research? (1988)

2. Why did you start doing research? (I love research, saw Roots series in rerun then read the book, the family was interested but nobody else would do it)

3. What was your first big success in research? (Finding that my Seaver family was descended from Peregrine White)

4. What is your biggest genealogy regret? (Did not interview my father before he passed away. Got his brother though!)

5. What are you best known for in the genealogy world? (Ranting on my Genea-Musings blog, I think. No books, no conference presentations, some local presentations).

6. What is your professional status in genealogy? (Not certified, or accredited, not pursuing either, don't take paying clients, do pro-bono work for friends and colleagues).

7. What is your biggest genealogy achievement? (blogging for almost three years at a 2.5 post per day clip? Filling up a database with over 2,000 ancestors and 23,000 people? I'm very numbers oriented!)

8. What is the most FUN you've had doing genealogy? (meeting genea-bloggers at Jamboree and SLC)

9. What is your favorite genealogy how-to book? (The Sleuth Book for Genealogists by Emily Anne Croom)

10. What notable genealogist would you like to meet someday? (Maureen Taylor)
