Geneaitis: Genealogy addiction that is contagious.
Genea-Santa = a fictional but ever-present persona who brings genealogy gifts to good little genealogists with records, obituaries, gravestones and repositories dancing in their head.
Also a yearly SNGF theme – see http://www.geneamusings.com/2007/11/dear-genea-santa.html
Thanks to Randy for this suggestion.
Genea-gasm — “the ‘Magic of Genealogy’ moment – a chill in my body, a tremendous feeling of thankfulness, and tears of joy. Usually occurs in a moment of genealogy discovery or extreme happiness.”
Genea-phantom – those people in your tree who you know existed, family history has always treated as a given, but when you go looking, you cannot find a shred of evidence they ever existed. Also known as Census-dodgers.

Lonetester mentioned in her blog on 18/8/2014 that Megan Smolenyak was a genealogy adventurer.
Today I was directed to a new Australian genealogy blog, Underneath the Flight Path. In the article I first read there was a link to a post that talked about a novel way to label births, deaths and marriage columns in newspapers as The Cradle, The Altar, The Grave.
