I was 10 years old when I got interested. My whole childhood I read
and historical novels, and not a lot of fiction. Then, in the fifth grade I
had a teacher who
said an ancestor of his sailed with Columbus and I was amazed that you could
out. My parents gave me the Handbook for Genealogists for Christmas. I
interviewed relatives until I hit my early 20s and I took a community
genealogy course and sent away to the National Archives my second great
Civil War pension. So, I guess I started at 10, but didn't really get
it until my 20s.
