Genealogy Gifts

I don’t think alot of people realize how important genealogy is to some members of our society. ( see~ ME) It’s a thrill to find your heritage.. It’s.. it’s.. Well words can’t describe the feeling. Here’s how you know you are addicted~

You know you are a Genealogy addict when….
…. You brake for libraries.

…. You hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery.

…. You would rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall.

…. You would rather read census schedules than a good book.

…. You are more interested in what happened in 1699 than in 1999.

…. You store your clothes under the bed (or wear the same two outfits to save space), because your closet is full of books and papers.

…. All your correspondence begins with “Dear Cousin”.

…. You have traced every one of your ancestral lines back to Adam and Eve, you have it documented and still don’t want to quit.

…. Your most important social life is meeting people who you run into while searching a family line.

… You KNOW what familytreemaker is.. and USE it daily.

… You have over 2000 people in your database and update it immediately when someone dies ( almost indecently.. like right after the funeral)

This all being said.. You all know someone like this. I am like this. How about getting them something for christmas showing them you recognize it? ( see that sign up there?) $7.95 in my shop.  http://vintagemomcreations.etsy.com

Signs can be customized with name.. I do need time though~Let’s not wait till the last minute ok?

Many Blessings and don’t forget to love your favorite Genealogist!!
