It's great to pass down a lifetime of family history research to the next generation. And it's true that you can never fully complete your family's genealogy... there will always be more mysteries to uncover and names to find.
Right now, though, we're scouring records both online and in libraries looking for just one incredible story about our ancestor's lives. But, when generations down the line start looking back at us, won't they have it too easy? Our whole lives are on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Are we taking the fun out of it for future genealogists? Or, will genealogy be dead by then?
Also... where did all my sudden doom-and-gloom outlook for the future of genealogy come from?
Post your thoughts if you have some on this. I promise to never post such depressing thoughts on a Monday ever again - BTW. :)
