BI is a true disciple of family history; he is a researcher, a stickler for accuracy and keeps impeccable records.
LGH is a person who dabbles, but who likes the stories behind the names.
So, recently when LGH said it was now possible to put pictures online at family tree; BI said,
"PICTURES? Who cares about a picture?"
Well, I am LGH and frankly, I was stunned. Because I care about pictures. I love seeing the pictures behind just the names.
But, then BI said, "The whole point of family history work is baptisms! Pictures don't do anything to help in that!"
Well, he had me! He was right...it's all about baptisms....or is it?
How about turning the hearts of the children? For me, part of the turning was the LEARNING of their lives, their sorrows, their tragedies, and their challenges.
So, BI, you go your way and I'll go mine.
And, we'll both be very very content with our side of the issue!
