Working for a genealogy company was not my plan when I answered a help wanted ad many years ago. The real factors were mainly distance (2.5 miles in a straight line from my home) and the fact that it was in the computer software industry. As it turned out, I am glad that I had a long run with a company whose products and services were meaningful to its customers.
I've had the chance to hear many wonderful stories about families and, every once in a while, hear how a product that I was involved with helped find or reunite a family.
I don't know whether moving to Utah (or continuing to work as a telecommuter) was something that the MyFamily.com folks ever considered for me. Both my wife's and my family are all here, though, so relocating just to keep my job (especially at my level in the company) probably wouldn't have made much sense.
As for my own future and genealogy, these days I seem to have a bit more time on my hands Maybe that means I can do more research on my own family's genealogy. And, if you hear of any company needing someone with my 9.5 years of experience, feel free to send them my way.
