I have been an active genealogist for forty years, off and on. There have been times when I burned out, and just stopped, but then after a while, I get back on track and get moving again. I am once again on a roll, particularly now since I am looking at retirement next year. I will have more time for travel and research, as well as internet searching. I am also now once again wired for the net, after being off line for a few years.
