Fatal Utterances

Fatal Utterances is a page on the Mythology and Folklore of Death Website.

So many of the entries there tickled my strange sense of humour.

Geneaguru

I saw the term GeneaGuru in a recent Facebook post from Pauleen Cass  in which she asked her Genimates with expertise in NSW to help her with an issue.

A quick search on Google found two further instances of this term. Pauleen used it in a post on April 2, 2016 and Mags Gaulden mentioned it on her Grandma’s Genes blog on February 9,2016.

From Reading these three posts I deduce that  A Geneaguru is a genealogist who is an expert or master in particular area in the genealogy field.

Genie Central

In a comment on Alona Tester‘s Facebook post today Chris Paton, a genealogist from Scotland, when visiting their retail outlet called Australia’s Gould Genealogy Genie Central.and indeed it is. It is the premier business in Australia that supplies genealogists with books, data CDs, software and stationery.

Thanks to Alona for allowing me to share this snip from Facebook in the Geneadictionary.

Congress

congbanner

It only happens once every three years. Aussie genies call it Congress but it has nothing to do with politics. It’s full title is The Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry (quite a mouthful).

Congress is held every three years under the auspices of AFFHO, the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations and brings together passionate family historians from around Australia, New Zealand and many parts of the world.

NextGen

A blog post from one of my young genimates this morning reminded me of those genies who are NextGen. These NextGen folk are the future of genealogy.

The NextGen Genealogy Network page tells me that NextGen are “young genealogists eighteen to fifty”.

I am thrilled to be an online genimate of so many of these clever, committed younger folk. Check out some of their profiles here.
