A Sabbatical for GeniAus

Often genealogists disappear from the geneasphere for a while. Because I have been concentrating on other things the poor old Geneadictionary hasn’t posted any new entries for a while.

I am not feeling particularly creative so I suggest we use the term Sabbatical to describe those times when we take a break from geneactivities.

Several online sources that I  have consulted suggest that a Sabbatical can be a “Break from work ( https://www.monster.co.uk/career-advice/article/taking-a-sabbatical)  or ” is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from two months to a year (https://www.google.com.au/search?q=sabbatical&oq=sabbatical&aqs=chrome..69i57.3925j0j9&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8).

Remembering that All Work and no play makes Jack (and Jill) dull I am committed to regular Sabbaticals.

Rotstech

Thanks to my lack of typing skills I have coined another word for the Geneadictionary. As I was typing Rootstech this morning I omitted an o and the word became Rotstech. At the time I was writing about my post-Rootstech malaise.

Rotstech or post-Rootstech malaise – a condition that affects genies on the Sunday immediately after the Rootstech conference when feels both exhausted and energised.

Megatree

I’ve been poking around on sites that host online family trees recently trying to find clues as I search for my Irish ancestors. I have found several trees boasting tens of thousands of leaves on masses of tangled branches. I wondered how it would be possible for the tree owners to carry out accurate and diligent research on such huge trees.The word Megatree just popped into my head.

Megatree: usually found online and often at Big Pay Subscription sites this variety boasts many leaves and branches which may not be related to each other.
