You Know You Are A Genealogy Addict When...



1.  You brake for libraries.
2.  You hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery.
3.  You would rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall.
4.  You would rather read census schedules than a good book.
5.  You are more interested in what happened in 1697 than 1997.
6.  Jenkins, Murray and Godwin are household names, but you can't remember what to call the dog.
7.  You can pinpoint Harriieysham, Hawkhurst, Kent, but you can't locate your state capitol on the map.
8.  You know every register of deeds in the state by name, but they lock the doors when they see you coming.
9.  You store your clothes under the bed, because your closet is full of books and papers.
10. You eat on the patio all the time because your dining room table is hidden by unsorted papers and there
    are files in every chair.
11. All of your correspondence begins "Dear Cousin".
12. You have traced every one of your ancestral lines back to Adam and Eve, have it documented, and still
    don't want to quit.
13. You check out mailing lists looking for "real" cousins.
14. You're thrilled to get an e-mail with a BOOK attachment of part of your family.
15. When you introduce yourself, you always add "I'm looking for dead relatives!"
16. You eat at the computer.
17. You get withdrawal pains when you have to leave the computer.
18. Your computer stays on 24 hours a day and you check your e-mail every hour.
