Hear what our genealogists
have to say:
Chris Child, reference librarian, visited NEHGS often as a child and
is now working at 101 Newbury Street. His passion for genealogy started
as a young child and continues today, specializing in Connecticut and
general New England research.
Getting interested in genealogy at a young age has been great since
I've had a chance to learn stories from the older generations of my
family. Many get interested in genealogy at retirement and have to start
with themselves. By interviewing my grandmother and great-aunts, I had
living witnesses to the earlier data, which made my search much easier.
I've also gotten some friends and their older relatives interested in
their pasts as well.
