Perhaps it is not economics but rather the TV show: who do you think you are that is making the difference? 

In Illinois, I do not see much economic improvement as jobs are still lacking, with gas and grocery prices increasing a lot!  Makes me wonder if the idea behind revolutions in the Middle East were geared to raise the barrel price of oil.  I understand that in early January that gas companies were predicting gas to go up to $5/gallon and that was weeks before the events in Egypt made the news.

Your observations are correct.  There is a very slight improvement in the economy that I hope will continue.  This is affecting genealogists in the SLC area.  Their businesses are not what they were prior to Pres. Bush's announcement two weeks before the last presidential elections, but there is an improvement.

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.
