This is the Face of Genealogy

Pearl Eva Spencer – My Grandmother

This entry is being posted in protest of the LAWeekly news article which was recently written purporting to showcase an upcoming genealogy conference.  The article was accompanied with a very “odd” and “offensive” photograph – see for yourself here

So I (along with many fellow genealogy bloggers) am posting photos of our family that would have served as far better choices for the article!  I concur with others that say, “What were they thinking”?!

    WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE THEY THINKING????? They may be someone’s relatives, but the choice was in bad taste and offensive to those of us who cherish the relatives and family history we have found via genealogy. Do they think all the work that genealogy research takes and all the time we commit to it is something to be made fun of? I think I will have to contact the responsible parties and voice my disgust and dismay.
