Sunday Fun Day – You Know You’re a Genealogist When…

Sunday Fun Day

You know you’re a genealogist when…

  • you casually ask your next-door neighbor what his mother’s maiden name was;
  • you become frustrated with Find A Grave because you have again reached your limit of photo requests;
  • your walls are covered with photos of dead people who look just like you;
  • you have to hold yourself back from building a tree for your cat on Ancestry;
  • you have on-line trees for every past spouse, boyfriend, and girlfriend;
  • you research the ancestry of your cousins’ “other sides”;
  • you get excited when you discover that an ancestor died from something other than cholera, tuberculosis, or pneumonia;
  • your vacations are spent in courthouses and libraries; and,
  • you have a pair of “cemetery walkin’ shoes” in your car — just in case.
