..And Laughing

Okay nothing too major today, just some Gene Pool funnies that I have found whilst roaming around looking for dead people.

One Liners:

  • Heredity: Everyone believes in it until their children act like fools!

  • I trace my family history so I will know who to blame.

  • Genealogy: A hay stack full of needles. It's the threads I need.

  • A family reunion is an effective form of birth control

  • Old genealogists never die, they just lose their census

  • So many ancestors...so little time!

  • Whoever said "seek and ye shall find" was NOT a genealogist


 

Top 10 Indicators that you've become a GENE-AHOLIC - Author unknown

  1. You introduce your daughter as your descendent.

  2. You've never met any of the people you send e-mail to, even though you're related.

  3. You can recite your lineage back eight generations, but can't remember your nephew's name.

  4. You have more photographs of dead people than living ones.

  5. You've ever taken a tape recorder and/or notebook to a family reunion.

  6. You've not only read the latest GEDCOM standard, but also you understand it.

  7. The local genealogy society borrows books from you.

  8. The only film you've seen in the last year was the 1880 census index.

  9. More than half of your CD collection is made up of marriage records or pedigrees.

  10. Your elusive ancestor has been spotted in more different places than Elvis!
