Woah! That's awesome W*GS! After my grandparents passed, they told me to carry on the geneaology tradition for our family. I've been working on a family history book with stories, photos, geneaology records, etc. -- and it's quite crazy. I really enjoy the stuff. Most people in my family think it is a waste of time.
I'm obsessed with ancestral crap and actually would like to do a DNA test sometime to find more information about haplogroups, but I hear it is pretty expensive. It's cool that your mom does that stuff. Maybe one day you will be the one in charge of all the records and research. Super cool!
