So much to learn...but I am loving my new hobby and will continue to follow it wherever it takes me. study study study

I love hearing when people find something in their life that lights up the day or the night, and that a hobby can be enjoyed so immensely!

Thank you, Tymber! It is amazing what you can learn from those old documents. Drinking

Today someone in the genealogy group asked for help with translating an old Italian marriage record from the 1890s and after a few hours none of the experts had responded. These are my bread and butter so I did my best and transcribed the document and then worked some Google translate magic. I provided the OP with the full Italian text and some cliff notes of what the text was about as that was all she had asked for. I knew I'd made a few mistakes and mentioned that in my reply.

I humbly admitted my lack of experience and advised that someone with more skill could provide a more complete and better translation, but this should give them a start.

Within minutes of my reply one of the regulars responded with a salty message and said my translation was "horrendous" and that he'd get to work on doing it the proper way but it would take him a few days. I thought he was a professional but after looking up his profile...nope, just some dude with a chip on his shoulder.

I'm keeping to myself the fact that I only spent about twenty minutes on the whole thing during my lunch break.  Laughing

Forgive me if this gave me a mental picture of Chico Marx.

I discovered a gentle soul.

I work with a man who is small in stature, an Arab Muslim who always wears a white prayer cap that matches his white beard.

Today he got a small piece of paper towel from me, saying something about, "Because he will die."

Then I saw him stoop down, scoop something tiny off the floor, and carry it outside.

This same man once told me he used to work at a convenience store, at which he was robbed at gunpoint six times.
