Your genealogy addiction explained. . .
January 05, 2007
Does this sound familiar?
Genealogy begins as an interest,
Becomes a hobby;
Continues as an avocation,
Takes over as an obsession,
And in its last stages,
Is an incurable disease.

My grown-up kids reaction to someone asking me how the genealogy is coming by rolling their eyes, and quietly muttering "Please don't get her started, Please don't get her started".

A fellow genealogist told me that when her family was riding in the car and her kids saw a cemetery up ahead they would yell "Dad - faster, faster!", so there would be no way they could stop.

Here in Wisconsin, during deer hunting season, wives whose husbands have gone hunting are referred to as "deer widows". At our house, my husband is referred to as a "genealogy widower".
