Saturday Night Genealogy Genealogisms
Randy Seaver posted his Saturday Night Genealogy challenge: Challenge
Your mission, should you decide to accept it is to:
1) Recall that some genealogists love to make up new words to define what we do or where we are… we want to make a “Genealogisms Dictionary” so that we all understand what we’re writing about.
2) Make up one or more words that deal with some aspect of genealogy – they could start with genea- or ancest- or end with -ology (we don’t care), and then define the word for us.
I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Here are my attempts:
Genea-friends: Genealogy friends
Ancestrimix: Mixing of two ancestry family
Geneaitis: Genealogy addiction that is contagious
Genea-censusology: the habit of only looking at census records
Geneawebinaritis: the daily looking for new Genealogy Webinars
Geneasomnambulism: to do Genealogy in your sleep
GeneaLectursomnambulism: To perform genealogy lectures in your sleep
Geneafamignorment: The act of family ignoring your talk of Famiy History
Geneaconferensaditis, the depression you get when you miss a Genealogy conference
GeneaESM: To source everything.
Geneacertifirepetionist: someone who keeps attempting to get their genealogy certification.
