At the Rootstech Conference yesterday we were challenged to take a geneaselfie and post it on Twitter. My genimate Sharn White took a photo of her and I and posted it with the caption ”  being genie-silly ” so that term for a moment of madness in a genealogy setting enters the Geneadictionary.

An Enthusiasm of Genealogists

Genies often suggest collective nouns for genealogists. I loved the phrase Else Churchill from the Society of Genealogists shared this week on the Rootstech edition of Mondays with Myrt  recorded in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.

Else’s phrase “An Enthusiasm of Genealogists” perfectly describes those gathered in Salt Lake City this week for the annual Rootstech Conference.
