But of course/By The Way

Ah, But of course!

Most of my family roots are underground. Only a genealogist regards a step backwards as progress.Time flies! Genealogists are the navigators!

Snobs talk as if they had begotten their own ancestors!

A COMPLETE Genealogy just can’t be..there’s always more.

Blessed are the Elderly for they remember what we never knew.

Age is a high price to pay for maturity!

A well-written life is as rare as a well-spent one.

A family history shows you have lived!

A generation that ignores history has neither past nor future.

Search long enough and EVERYONE connects somehow.

I should have asked them BEFORE they died!

There is no such thing as a useless piece of information.

The world is run by those who show up for the meeting.

Time and genealogy waits for no man.

Trees without roots fall over.

We are all related…relatively speaking.

We shall find no ancestor before his time.

It’s hard to believe that someday I’ll be an ancestor.

Still trying to decorate my family tree.

There is strength in our roots.

Oh, By The Way

I’m always late. My ancestors must have arrived on the Juneflower.

My family came on the Mayflower…or was it Allied?

Who’s in charge of washing the Family Group Sheets?

When tracing ancestors, please stay within the lines!

Genealogists live in the past lane.

Ghosts are merely unsubstantiated roomers.

It appears as if my ancestors had several bad heir days.

AND on the eighth day God said, “OK, Murphy, take over.”

His teacher asked little Johnnie, “What do Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Franklin Roosevelt all have in common?” Little Johnnie replied, “They are all dead!”
