I also fall in the “18-35″ demographic, I’m 23 and I’ve been doing genealogy for about 9 years now! :)

Pam, I agree 100%!

Can’t people just have a little fun sometimes? I don’t know about anyone else, but researching my family can get boring at times, and more often than not – frustrating! I thought this blog was a nice distraction. Take a deep breath, calm down, and have a little fun!

I always wondered where exactly the districts were and it’s interesting to see how the actors’ family histories match up to the characters’.
I don’t know why everyone is being so crabby, fun factoids like this don’t negatively impact anyone’s research and they’re fun to see!
PS hfarmer, I’m in the 18-35 demographic. I’ve been doing genealogy research for five years and I love it!

It is not cool, hip, or fun. They should just accept that it is a niche hobby and appeal as much as possible to us.

I don’t like paying for this crap.

I’m not crazy about fictional trees or enticing teens to get on and create junk trees wtih their “I want it now” attitudes. While genealogy is a great deal of fun for me, it is also something serious, and I pay for use of this site with limited funds. Don’t waste my time, money and the site resources on this nonsense.

If I want fun, I’ll watch a funny movie or Kmart’s latest TV commercial on Joe Boxer shorts.

Just my 2 cents.

I love my elders (including those who come in to the library to do research) but come on…have a sense of fun! Maybe something like this will draw in teens….and they’ll research YOU, you don’t want to be known as a dull crab! Keep expanding horizons Ancestry!!

I can answer that. My ancestors did not come from any of these fictional districts. My ancestors were real people. They were not characters in a book.

Now, if I could just download some of the census records today without constantly getting an “error has occurred” message I would feel blessed.
