Sometimes my background in finance and my interest in genealogy merge in
unexpected ways.  This morning I was watching CNBC report on improving jobs
numbers while I was thinking about how my own professional genealogical
activity has picked up lately.  I wondered if there was a correlation
between genealogical activity and the economy in general?   So, what are
others experiencing?  Is genealogy business picking up?   Maybe APG could
start a survey -- The Genealogy Economic Indicator?  I suggest that mostly
in jest, with a tinge of seriousness.
