Are You A Genealogy Geek?

You might be a genealogy geek if:
  1. You'd rather go to a genealogy conference than a tropical summer vacation destination.
  2. You'd rather visit a cemetery than people who are living.
  3. You spend more time on your computer after midnight than during the day.
  4. You're daily "newspaper" reading consists of genealogy related blogs in your RSS feed reader.
  5. The friends you choose have the same addiction to genealogy passion for doing research on their ancestors.
  6. Snow days make you grin from ear to ear as you relish in the thought of a "genealogy day".
  7. Most of your photos are black and white or sepia toned.
  8. Eating and sleeping are not priorities anymore.
  9. Regardless of how the conversation starts, it ends with you discussing your ancestors.
  10. The cabinets are bare, the laundry is not done, the bills are not paid, you have not bathed, but genealogy RSS feeds are all read.
  11. Your annual tax return is already spent on this year's conferences, online database subscriptions and memberships to more than one genealogy society.
  12. You walk around with a magnifying glass in your purse.

  1. Do you have a webcam in my laundry room? Because #10 is literally true for me.
