So You Want To Know Your Genealogy?
(Here's a "funny" I think you will enjoy. Remember: things get a little sloppy around here on the weekend. It takes a lot of work for me to keep "sloppy" only to the weekend, so your understanding is appreciated. I receive daily funnies from MikeysFunnies.com, and I include one of his here. Click on the link to check it out.)
THOUGHTS ON GENEALOGY
~ Genealogy: Tracing yourself back to better people.
~ I trace my family history so I will know who to blame.
~ Can a first cousin, once removed, return?
~ Are you searching for lost relatives? Win the lottery--you'll find 'em!
~ Do I even WANT ancestors?
~ Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.
~ Every family tree has some sap in it.
~ Friends come and go, but relatives tend to accumulate.
~ Genealogists never die, they just lose their roots.
~ Genealogy: A haystack full of needles. It's the threads I need.
~ Heredity: Everyone believes in it until their children act like fools.
~ I think my family tree is a few branches short of full bloom.
~ Theory of relativity: If you go back far enough, we're all related
Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are going dead?
