I met and proposed to my wife in a Family History Center (two separate days). Naturally, I thought we would spend a life together researching each other's roots. I later found out that she was just there for the student employment (the Family History Center was in a library of a university) and had little interest in genealogy.
We still got married, and I am still trying to convince her to love genealogy as much as I do.
Over the years I have learned a few dos and don'ts for "persuading" my family that genealogy is fun. In fact, Legacy Family Tree has many tools that has made this task easier for me. I am working on an article to be used for a conference syllabus which explains some of these ideas. I hope you will read it and publish your comments here regarding what has worked for you.
