Kollies Genealogy

10 signs you’re addicted to genealogy
  • You ask for a certificate as a Birthday/Christmas present.
  • The local librarian knows you on first name terms.
  • Friends and family members eyes glaze over when you start to talk about your cousin two times removed…again!
  • A vacation is centred around a place you wanted to visit for research purposes.
  • The groundsman at your local¬†cemetery¬†knows you on first name terms.
  • The first thing you think of when you wake up is a recent discovery/research project relating to your family history.
  • You research on your smartphone/tablet/laptop at night whilst ‘watching’ TV.
  • People no longer ask “What are you up to this weekend?” because they know the answer will involve a records office/cemetery/distant relatives.
  • You budget part of your monthly wage to buying new certificates…every month!
  • It took you twice as long as it should have to read this because you were distracted by a new potential lead on that ‘brickwall’ you thought you had.

How many of these are true for you? Let me know in the comments section below.
