One Word: Describe family history

One Word: Describe family history

Comments33

Calling all word lovers – or those who love their thesaurus (or is that thesauri?).

Somebody once said that using five words – when one will suffice – is the mark of a verbose character. There is an inherent difficulty in selecting one word to reflect a range of emotions and, as I’m sure you’ll know, genealogy elicits many such emotions.

In that vein: What’s one word that tells the MyHeritage team how you feel about family history or genealogy?

Describe the emotion – in one word – for when you discover an elusive new fact about an ancestor.

What’s the word for how you feel when you’ve made a great new find or you’ve broken through one of those proverbial brick walls?

What’s your word for how you feel about searching for your ancestors?

Give us one word which epitomises the search for your family history.

Give us those words in the comments below, or on Twitter using the hash tag #MyHeritageOneWord Twitter (it’s hard to use up 140 characters with just one word!), or Facebook.

We’re waiting for your words!

    no one word can describe what you ask.
    There is something in this world so beautiful that your eyes can not see it
    You can only feel it in your heart
