Genies: a term used commonly in Australia to describe genealogists or family historians.

It seems that the term is used internationally as Dorene from Ohio said in 2011…

“Genies – individuals who pursue genealogy”



Update 5/8/2019  I was just reading a 2005 article in which Heather Garnsey, Executive Officer of The Society of Australian Genealogists,  is quoted in The Sydney Morning Herald as saying”genealogists – or “genies” as they call themselves.
