I love it. Always have. I was 11 years old when my mom brought out a box of old pictures and documents. They were strewn out all over the kitchen table and I was mesmerized. Since then, finding people who have passed on has been a love of my life.
And yes, even though I do it because it's fun as heck for me, I also do it for pay. I'm not a "professional", meaning I don't have a Geneolgist license. But I am good enough at it anyway that I'd pay me to do it. :) The lack of licensure makes me pretty inexpensive as well.
