I geeked out on ancestry (well literally, Ancestry.com!) a couple years ago and traced back most of my family 10+ generations, INCLUDING both of my adopted grandparents. Pretty awesome.
I always need something to geek out about. Lately, it's been the damned virus. But once that gets old, I'll either A) get back into brewing or B) ancestry/geneology.
And as a sidebar that comes back every spring & summer, I've been paying way too much attention to my backyard orchard again lately... it's going to be another bumper crop this year, finally, after 2 off-years in a row. Yay me. Should get 2 bushels Honeycrisp, plus some peaches, yeah, in Wisconsin, not to mention many other fruits.
But yeah. Geneology including DNA stuff is pretty fascinating to me. I'm still very much a noob but I do enjoy it.
Cheers to you Fred.
