Saturday Night Genealogy Fun

Once again, it's time for Randy Seaver's weekly blog prompt, Saturday Night Genealogy Fun!

Hi genea-buffs - it's Saturday Night -- time for more Genealogy Fun!!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is based on Katie O's post You Might Be a Genealogist If ... on the You Are Where You Came from blog:

". . . 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:

You might be a genealogist if... you go to weddings and funerals for research purposes.

... you page through the current phone book looking for the surnames you are researching.

... you attend a family association meeting in a distant city, then miss part of it to visit cemeteries of your ancestors nearby.

... you visit cemeteries to photograph stones for people you've never met because they requested it on the Internet.

... you ask others to do the same for your distantly buried ancestors.

... you spend hours browsing through census indexes.

... you actually pay to subscribe to or other similar sites.

Stumped for more, alas.  Sick with a nasty cold, it has my head all stuffed up and not working well.
