Home: Genealogists' sayings
If you' are lucky enough to be a genealogist, you are lucky enough. Ruth Padilla
Genealogy: Tracing yourself back to better people.
I trace my family history so I will know who to blame.
Every family tree has some sap in it.
Friends come and go, but relatives tend to accumulate.
Genealogists never die, they just loose their roots.
Genealogy: A hay stack full of needles. It's the threads I need.
Genealogy: Collecting dead relatives and sometimes a live cousin!
Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.
I think my family tree is a few branches short of full bloom.
Research: What I'm doing, when I don't know what I'm doing.
Take nothing but ancestors, leave nothing but records.
The past is not dead. It isn't even past. --William Faulkner, 1897-1962
When we die we become 'stories' in the minds of other people.
Shake your family tree and watch the nuts fall!
A family reunion is an effective form of birth control
A family tree can wither if nobody tends it's roots
A new cousin a day keeps the boredom away
Am I the only person up my tree... sure seems like it
Any family tree produces some lemons, some nuts and a few bad apples
Heredity: Everyone believes in it until their children act like fools!
Trees without roots fall over
Kinship: it`s all relative!
When you search for ancestors, you find great friends!
Still trying to decorate my family tree.
A new cousin a day keeps the boredom away.
It's hard to be humble with ancestors like mine!
This packrat has learned that what the next generation will value most is not
what we owned, but the evidence of who we were and the tales of how we loved. In
the end, it's the family stories that are worth the storage.
