Thanks to Carmel Galvin for spotting this new term from Randy Seaver.
In a post on his blog Genea-musings Randy wrote “I may be an old geneasaurus, but these mailing lists and message boards are very valuable for many genealogists and family historians.”
We can deduce the meaning of Geneasaurus if we read Randy’s post.
There are several blogs that have the term Ancestories in their titles.
Ancestories: Stories about our ancestors.
I was thrilled to read this post today on the Up in the Tree Blog and to see two gorgeous geneapets, Riley and Coco.
You can meet them here http://upinthetree.com/blog/2016/02/08/my-geneapets/
There are many Cousin Bait success stories out on the internet. There are also several definitions.
GeniAus reels them in – in 1987
My genimate from Texas, Amy Coffin, says that with Cousin Bait “you’re fishing for cousins so you can compare information for your respective family trees.”
In her post here she describes how she Reeled in a Big One.
1 March 2016 Update: Thanks to Geneadictionary supporter, Tony Proctor who has found that the term “Cousin Bait” was first used by Greta Koehl on Greta’s Genealogy Bog (that’s not a typo) on 19 March 2010. (http://gretabog.blogspot.ie/2010/03/family-and-friends-newsletter-friday-19.html)
1. Joynealogy is the title of a genealogy blog I follow (joynealogy.blogspot.com)
2. More importantly Joynealogy describes the feelings of elation I get from my genealogy activities.
GeniAus and friends experience Joynealogy at Rootstech 2015.
I spotted a new AKA this morning.
My genimate from San Diego J. Paul Hawthorne is now blogging as the Geneaspy here: geneaspy.blogspot.com.
As today, November 1, is All Saints Day I am offering this phrase from Kerry Scott.
Saint Genie – wander over to this post on Kerry’s blog to see if you fit the bill
