In Search Of Lineage

I need a hobby. Will genealogy suit my purpose? I do not know exactly what I want out of it. Would I like to know where and what my deeper origins are? Pleasant surprises would be nice.

Oh oh, already I foresee difficult decisions. Will I force myself to search the sides of my family for whom, to put it mildly, I have no ready affinity? Do I have enough information from my DNA test by, or will I spring for their pricey family history access package? Will life ease up on me and give me time for a new hobby? Will this hobby bring me pleasure and relaxation? "Ha, damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead!" I whoop as I drive into the fog in search of my lineage.

Definitions of genealogy:

1: an account of the descent of a person, family, or group from an ancestor or from older forms

2: regular descent of a person, family, or group of organisms from a progenitor

3: the study of family ancestral lines

4: an account of the origin and historical development of something
