What is one tip you would give a newbie genealogist?

The one tip I would give newbie genealogists is to enroll in a good educational program. An example would be the courses that FamilySearch offers online, and the courses that NGS offers.

What is your favorite Repository?

In Canadian terms, the local libraries and archives are my favourite. The people who give of their time in these repositories are full of knowledge, and they share with us when we come on a research trip.

What is your ______ ancestor story? (fill in the blank, ie craziest, saddest...)

My favorite ancestor story is of the generation who left Nova Scotia and went to the United States to find work at the turn of the 20th century. They are to be admired for their courage and strong will to leave their families and head off to the States.
