Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - You Might be a Genealogist if ...

This is a fun blog post this week! It is based on Katie O's post You Might Be a Genealogist If ... on the You Are Where You Came from blog.

"You might be a genealogist if . . . you know exactly what you want to get with your tax refund, and it's your great-great-great-grandmother's death certificate."

Here are the directions:

1)  Make up your own "You Might be a Genealogist if..." sayings.  One or more.  Lots.  The more the merrier.  You can use Katie's tax theme, or any other theme - you're completely free to make up anything you want!
2)  Tell us about them in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, in a Twitter feed, or in a Facebook status line or comment.

Here are mine:

1. You might be a genealogist if ... you send SASE and blank Family Group sheets to your family with your Christmas cards.
2. You might be a genealogist if ... the first thing you ask someone new you meet is where their ancestors come from and then offer to look it up for them if they don't know. 
3.  You might be a genealogist if ... a bill collector calls about a late payment and she ends up telling you how her family was on the ship that rescued the survivors of the Titanic. Of course you encourage the conversation because it buys you some extra time to pay that late payment!

You can't pass a cemetery without secretly wishing you could stop and check it out

You write FAG in a note or letter and are annoyed when someone tells you it is a "slur"

You have a picture of your GGrgandmother hanging on the wall by your computer and are always looking for her facial features in the faces of your children/nieces/nephews/cousins and most times find them !
