Artcestry

When sharing this news story about an art exhibiton on Twitter last month @THEGenShow2020  suggested the term Artcestry to describe such exhibitions.

Following on the ideas put forward in the article I suggest a definition:
Artcestry: The portrayal of origin and ancestry in works of Art.

A recent portrait of my husband and I by our six year old granddaughter is an example of Artcestry.

Genie Chum

Last weekend I met up with Sylvia Valentine, a  genimate of mine from Yorkshire. In reporting our meeting on Twitter Sylvia called me her Genie Chum, which I guess is an English equivalent of Genimate

I’ll be seeing Sylvia at The Genealogy Show in Birmingham later this week. Perhaps I’ll find some new English geneawords to add to the Geneadictionary there.

Blogicide

Looking for something else today I came across a 2011 post from John D Reid, Chris Paton commits Blogicide. I remember when this instance of Blogicide was committed by Chris Paton!

What a gem of a word is Blogicide! I had to share it immediately.

I proffer this definition: Blogicide – the act of killing off a blog, this may be intentional or unintentional – perhaps that is BlogSlaughter!

The earliest mention I can find for Blogicide is here in 2008

Iceberg Genealogy Researcher

I have seen the term Iceberg related to genealogy research a few times over the years. There was a poster put out by in 2009 by The California Genealogical Society and Library.

This week Lenore from The GenTraveling Site left a comment on one of my posts so I headed over to her site where I found her definition of  an Iceberg Genealogy Researcher. (Follow the link)

Take a look at her description. Does it describe some of your genimates?
