Rhonda Sanders’s co-workers call her the “lady in charge of the dead and the moldy.” Although it is a humorous title for the genealogy and local history librarian for the Hall County Library System’s Gainesville branch, it’s also a reflection on how little people may know about genealogy. The best example of how genealogy is more interesting than simply studying the deceased is Sanders’ suggestion for beginning the genealogy process: start with yourself.
