Mel,

Good one! Many thanks for posting this. The link at the bottom of the page ("learn more about searching for ancestors") goes to http://www.rootdig.com/adn/ and brings up a list of interesting and helpful short articles, worth browsing through. A good site altogether, I think, and not "just for laughs"!

I didn't explore the site, just giggled at the above link.

I will revisit it when I have a minute or two later.

You can't pass a cemetery without stopping to see if one of your relatives is buried there.
There is a microfilm reader installed in your bathroom
You call travelling 10 miles to a shopping mall a lenghty trip but call a 100 mile trip to a cemetery a quick jaunt.
You ask every person you meet the last names of their grandparents
You have a massive collection of articles in which your surname is mentioned only once
You have carpel tunnel syndrome from cranking microfilm reader handles
You can recite the day, month and year of your great grandmother's birth but can't remember your own spouse's birthdate
More than half the photographs in your photo albums are of dead people
You can remember things that happened 100 years ago but can't remember what happened yesterday.


Most of the numbers stored in your mobile phone are for libraries and cemeteries!
