You know your addicted
to genealogy when...
  • Your idea of a fun vacation includes a library, courthouse and a couple of cemeteries.
  • Your dream vacation is to spend a week at the LDS Library, in Salt Lake City.
  • You can answer all of the queries on the FHUK Forums.
  • You receive 100 e-mails a day and 99 of them are from Roots-L mailing lists.
  • You have your own set of keys to the local Family history center and the employees think you work there.
  • There's not one person on your X-mas card list that you have actually met, although they all have the same last name.
  • You know the mailman's schedule better than he does, and if he's late you drive around looking for him.
  • You've read the entire Root-L archives twice.
  • You introduce your children as your descendants.
  • You begin referring to cemeteries as ancestor farms and headstones as concrete evidence.

very good and true, a while ago on the way up to Scotland. I wondered if I could find the time to stop off at Woodhorn Records centre for a few hours. :eek:

Last August I was in England and for the first time decided to visit some cemeteries whilst I was there, to see if I could smash through some brick walls. I went to Calverley, Pudsey and Idle. I spent hours wandering around (and found nothing). Then I went to visit a living descendant of my Gt Gt Grandmother's in Deepcar (who I called out of the phone book) and had the most wonderful visit with her. I heard family gossip that you could only get "from the horses mouth".

I will fit this kind of activity into every visit home from now on - I had a wonderful time.
