  1. How about “kissing cousins”? This term seems to have originated in America to describe marriages between cousins. I’ve seen Megan Smolenyak use the term in her writing..

  2. Genea-cave = the genealogy room in a genealogist’s home. May contain desk, computer system, bookcases, file cabinets, boxes of stuff, piles of paper, etc. See http://www.geneamusings.com/2007/03/look-at-genea-cave.html

    Genea-gasm = that moment when a “Magic of Genealogy” moment occurs – may include a chill in my body, a tremendous feeling of thankfulness, and tears of joy. See http://www.geneamusings.com/2008/05/magic-of-genealogy-moment-genea-gasm.html

    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

    I’ll try to think up some more, I know I’ve said them and written them, but need to find them. I did have a SNGF post several years ago asking for contributions to the Genea-dictionary but I never followed up and created one. Ah, found it – see http://www.geneamusings.com/2011/03/saturday-night-genealogy-fun-contribute.html Use as needed!

    Can I make this the SNGF for this week? I should have done it last week, I guess.

    Cheers — Randy

    • Randy – sorry I took a while to reply – I am still finding my way around WordPress – I knew there was a comment somewhere and I just found it. I’d be honoured to have you use this as a #SGNF activity.

      The list of words is growing in my Evernote notebook, I am drip-feeding them into the list. It is tempting to write a couple of posts a day – there is so much good stuff but I am trying to exercise restraint. I have enough material for a year at least!

  4. Great idea. I would add the phrases “shirt tale relative” and “happy dance” or “genealogy happy dance” . A shirt tale relative is usually a distant relative but sometimes refers to a very close family friend . The genealogy happy dance is something every red blooded genealogist does when there is a new exciting discovery.

    • Thanks Jackie. I hadn’t heard of shirt tail relative. I’ll add it for sure. I love your description oh happy dance so will use that in a post too. Appreciate your input.
