In a tweet on 12 December 2016 Andrew Martin mentioned the conflicts he has between his two hobbies: gym work and genealogy.

Thanks Carmel for making up my mind and for your support of the Geneadictionary.

I have been known to lament about the Swimmers in my family, not those who take daily to the pool to do a few laps but Swimmers of the ancestor variety.

Swimmers: probably a southern hemisphere term for those whose arrival ship is unknown, and possibly likely to remain so.
