Episode 89: Is Family History Part of Your Personality

It’s likely that if you listen to the Photo Detective podcast that you love family history from the stuff to the stories, but do you love all the parts of collecting, preserving, and sharing your family history?  I bet there are pieces that appeal more than others.  According to my guest, genealogy might be part of your personality.  That’s right. If you’ve ever felt a need to find facts, tell tales, or write it all down, then that family history pursuit could be a part of you.  Imagine finding collaborative partners within your own family to work together to pass all that history onto descendants.  

If you’re fond of tests that reveal more about you then you’ll love what Teresa McCloy has to say.  It’s clear from my test results that working with photographs is part of my personality. The test score proved it.
