Congratulations to Megan Smolenyak2 for being named Ancestry.com's Chief Family Historian. I regard Megan as my genealogical patron saint, and have no doubt that she will continue to speak up for the little guy while hobnobbing with the powers-that-be in Provo.
Heck, she's even familiar with classic literature.
I don't know how many of you all remember "Horton Hears a Who!" (which is being made into a movie incidentally). Remember all the whos of Whoville? "We are here. We are here! WE ARE HERE!"
Well, that's the way I feel about genealogy. There are millions of us -- all pursuing one of the most popular hobbies on the planet -- but you hear relatively little about us. In my new role as Ancestry.com's CFH, I'm hoping to be have the opportunity to let folks know that WE ARE HERE! Wish me luck! [Link]
