NoneHow do we keep younger ones interested?

Talking to Toni last night I realised that other than my one son I really have no one to pass my work on to. He is slightly interested, but since he didn't grow up around my family he is a bit disconnected to this sides genealogy. It's sad to think that my brothers and sisters as well as many cousins are now becoming the older generation at the reunion's, and the younger ones don't seem to care. I think for my generation and especcially in my case many of the ancestors are so much a part of who we are as I have heard all the stories and they come alive through the acconts. Since my dad's parents and grandparents were all deceased before I was born, as was my mom's mother and grandparents.

 I will be 50 in June and am seeing that I wont be able to work on this stuff to much longer. My memory is shot and my eyes are going. The arthritis along with a broken knuckle in my right hand makes typing and transferring the data I still have not input harder and harder to do. But on a high note it is something I love doing and will do my best to keep updating, correcting and documenting the data I have.

Sometimes it gets difficult as I have depression and bi-polar so tend to try to do to many things at once. I still need to finish my poetry project of copying all my poems (about 400) to computer adding pictures and comments to each one I think I have about 40 done so far.
