Saturday Night Fun Genealogy Survey


1) Answer these questions in my survey about genealogy resources and usage:

I have Ancestral Quest since version 1, version 14 here now.

b)  Which online family trees have information submitted by you - in either a separate online tree (e.g., Ancestry Member Tree) or a universal (collaborative) online tree (e.g., WikiTree)?
The Family Tree on Rootsweb, which is also on Family Search today.

c)  For which subscription genealogy record providers (e.g., Ancestry) do you have a subscription?
World Vital Records

d)  Which FREE genealogy record providers (e.g., FamilySearch) do you use regularly?
Family Search, RootsWeb, and the Washington State Digital Archives a lot.

e)  How much time do you spend each week doing actual genealogy research online?  [Note:  not reading, or social networking, but actual searching in a record provider].  Estimate an average number of hours per week.
Probably an hour a week

f)  How much time do you spend each week doing actual genealogy research in a repository (e.g., library, archive, courthouse, etc.)?  Estimate an average number of hours per month over, say, a one year period.
Two to three hours a week at the library or courthouse.

probably about ten minutes a week on a  monthly average

h)  How much time do you spend each month at a genealogical society meeting, program or event (not a seminar or conference)?  Estimate an average number of hours per month over, say, a one year period.

A couple of hours a month
