My genimate, Chris Goopy, suggested this word for inclusion in the Geneadictionary, thanks Chris for the following definition and directing me to the image below.

Genealogify – to turn all conversations to questions or statements about family history.

While rereading a post from my genimate Pauleen Cass this morning I noted that she used the term Geneadinosaur. I realise that I fit into her definition of this beast.


A Geneadinosaur

Pauleen wrote:

“I’m a geneadinosaur having started my research when personal computers were in the infancy of their use and had vastly less memory than today’s memory sticks. Archives and reference libraries were meant for “serious” researchers and genealogists really weren’t catered for to any great extent. This made for a tough learning curve but it did generate determination, record discrimination, and some grassroots acquisition of knowledge.”

Are you also a Geneadinosaur?
