Being A Good Genealogy Ambassador — 5 Comments

  1. I really liked this! I think that it’s so easy today to say things via e-mail that we never would say in person. Always good to THINK first! And your story about the man in the library – all I can say is when did we forget our manners?

    It’s hard sometimes, but you are so right about…we all have the chance to be good ambassadors each and every day!!

  2. We do need to be good ambassadors, so the next genealogist to go to an archive is not feared by the clerks.
    Have you checked for a local genealogical society close by that could do the look up and copies for you? I do that kind of look ups for my local gene society for a lot less than the $2 a page they quoted.

  3. My Mom has always said you get way more with sugar than spice. I always hear her in the back of my mind.

  4. Great post Chris. I starting to share some experiences I have had and it got a little lengthy so am going to write a post over at my place. This is a topic that needs alot of attention. All it takes is one bad apple to spoil it for the next person.

  5. EXCELLENT article. I always try to be a kind person to everyone who crosses mypath. One kind word may change a persons day. BUT….i take it personally and get VERY upset when i am treated RUDELY when i am so nice. When I went back home to NJ to do research you would not believe how mean nd crabby people are. Some nice folks too BUT sometimes if i snap right back and giv it right back it helps but i hate being so snippy. Maybe you should do an experiment??
