Hey genea-addicts, it’s Saturday Night - time for more Genealogy Fun!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and I hope that all of you do!), is to:
1) Read Michael John Neill’s post 10 Signs You Have Genealogy OCD (come on, give Michael some link love).
2) Make up any number of sentences that will add to his list of signs that you have Genealogy OCD. From one to many, no limit!
3) Share your ingenuity and humor with us in your own blog post, in Comments to this post, in comments to Michael’s post, or in a comment on Google Plus or Facebook.
Comfort Starr House - Guilford, Connecticut
* Drive 520 miles round trip on vacation just to visit a cemetery and ancestral home.
* Co-workers think a great tee-shirt slogan for you would be "Debbie Digs Dead People".
* Most locations on your GPS are cemeteries.
* Visit neighboring library systems to acquire a library card. This way you can utilize their databases.
* Carry a pad of paper "in case" inspiration strikes for an amazing genealogy blog post.
* Have day off from work and meeting room booked for 1940 Census Day Party.
* Your husband keeps a "cemetery survival kit" of magazines, snacks and drinks in the car on weekends. He may need them "just in case" we happen upon a graveyard.
* Ask for gift cards from Barnes & Noble (genealogy magazines), Office Depot gift (genealogy supplies), and Exxon (genealogy travel). Gone are the days of clothing and jewelery stores.
* Talk about long past ancestors more than living relatives. Of course you find them far more interesting!
* Remember when great-great-great grandfather Adam was born but can't recall what you had for dinner last night.
* Spend hours on Find-A-Grave organizing family relationship links.
* Forget how to work all household appliances.
* Watch "Who Do You Think You Are" while chatting with genealogy friends on Twitter.
* Start conversations with "where are your people from?"
* KNOW you have GOCD and don't give a rip!
What are your symptoms?
