What Is Genealogy?

A little genealogical humour, reprinted from American Elm, Vol 28, No 4, Winter 1999

Genealogists are like monkeys; always in the trees.
Genealogists are time unravelers.
Genealogists do it generation after generation.
Genealogists live in the past lane.
Genealogists never lose their jobs, they just go to another branch!
Genealogy in the buff, no I mean . . . A genealogy Buff!
Genealogy goes on. . . and on. . . and on. . .
Genealogy is like Hide & Seek: They Hide & I Seek!!!
Genealogy is not a hobby, it is a disease!
Genealogy: A hay stack full of needles. It’s the threads I need.
Genealogy: Chasing your own tale!
Genealogy: The marriage of a jigsaw puzzle to a dungeon & dragon game.
Genealogy: Tracing descent from someone who didn’t.
Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.
