Genealogy Humor


  • What do you mean my grandparents didn't have any kids!
  • Your idea of a fun vacation includes a library, a courthouse and a couple of cemeteries.
  • You introduce your children as your descendants.
  • Sure a real job would be nice, but it would interfere with my genealogy.

Genealogy Humor


  • Aspire to Inspire before you Expire.
  • Take nothing but ancestors, leave nothing but records.
  • Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.
  • Research: What I am doing, when I don't know what I am doing.
  • Cousins marrying cousins: A non-branching family tree.
