None of us were Genealogists when we first started. For me it was from the womb, I think, that my grandmother started my informal education as the Family Historian. Spent a lot of time listening to both my grandmothers. I really didn't get serious about it till about 18 years ago.
We all start and that's the biggest part - just starting. So, start doing what you want to do and join us to add what you want. You don't have to be anything more than curious to become a family historian or Genealogist or, for that matter, a WikiTreer!
