Genie Chum

Last weekend I met up with Sylvia Valentine, a  genimate of mine from Yorkshire. In reporting our meeting on Twitter Sylvia called me her Genie Chum, which I guess is an English equivalent of Genimate

I’ll be seeing Sylvia at The Genealogy Show in Birmingham later this week. Perhaps I’ll find some new English geneawords to add to the Geneadictionary there.

SAG

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa. P1040364

As an Australian Genie I should have added an entry for Australia’s oldest Genealogy Society to the Geneadictionary. I am correcting that today.

SAG refers to the Society of Australian Genealogists of which I am a proud member.

Blogicide

Looking for something else today I came across a 2011 post from John D Reid, Chris Paton commits Blogicide. I remember when this instance of Blogicide was committed by Chris Paton!

What a gem of a word is Blogicide! I had to share it immediately.

I proffer this definition: Blogicide – the act of killing off a blog, this may be intentional or unintentional – perhaps that is BlogSlaughter!

The earliest mention I can find for Blogicide is here in 2008

Iceberg Genealogy Researcher

I have seen the term Iceberg related to genealogy research a few times over the years. There was a poster put out by in 2009 by The California Genealogical Society and Library.

This week Lenore from The GenTraveling Site left a comment on one of my posts so I headed over to her site where I found her definition of  an Iceberg Genealogy Researcher. (Follow the link)

Take a look at her description. Does it describe some of your genimates?
