The Geneatweets: 16/09/2010 By Aaron September 16, 2010 Share Share Copy Link 10 of the week’s weirdest, funniest, and most intriguing genealogy tweets. Enjoy! — “The ancestor of every action is a thought.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (@TimeForTheBest) I see dead people. Then I put them in my genealogy (or those of clients). (@poemblaze1) In 2007, it was estimated that 22 per cent of living Australians had a convict ancestor…do you? (@AussieFoodShop2) Love that old family history stuff, even if it does show odd stuff. You’re lucky having a record going way back. (@filtration12) Is there a secret in your family history? Famous US civil rights photographer was a FBI spy – http://tiny.cc/9aaof (@Infolass) Learned a great Maori word tonight: whakapapa, or genealogy. A New Zealander enthralled me with the generational story of his family. (@Cirincione) Had a bit of a genealogy hunt tonight but my elusive ancestors remain just that. #genealogy (@WollemiPine) POPS WAS A ROLLIN STONE ITS IN MY ANCESTRY (@STARbANNGGAA) It’s nice to have relatives visit from out of town. But after a week, it’s also nice to see them go. 🙂 (@timstahmer) Nicknames you have; why do you have them Fae- This is a combination of “Fiona” and “Mae” (@elionae)
