They’re sure to make genealogists and non-genealogists alike chuckle. “My ancestors are so hard to find, they must have been in a witness protection program!” Eventually, all genealogists come to their census. Genealogists: The only people who are excited to read obituaries. “Done! Everything in the family tree has been found and is completely organized” — said no genealogist. Ever. Genealogist: Disturbs the dead and irritates the living. Genealogy is like playing hide and seek: They hide… we seek! “I’m not stuck, I’m ancestrally challenged.” Gene-Allergy: It’s a contagious disease, but we love it. Genealogy: Where the answer to one problem leads to two more! “My husband calls cemeteries ancestor farms.” “I’m more interested in what happened in 1816, than what’s happening today in 2016” Wife to husband: “Never mind the children, do you know where your second great-grandparents are tonight?” Only a genealogist views a step backwards as progress. “I used to have a lot of free time… then I discovered genealogy.” “I collect dead relatives!” “My ancestors did WHAT?” A pack rat is hard to live with, but makes a mighty fine ancestor. “I want to find ALL of them!
