..7 Word Obituary..

A woman from the deepest, most southern part of Alabama goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written. The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word.

She pauses, reflects and then says, “Well, then, let it read, ‘Billy Bob died’.”

Amused at the woman’s thrift, the editor says, “Sorry ma’am, there is a 7 word minimum on all obituaries.”

Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a few seconds says, “In that case, let it read, ‘Billy Bob died – 1983 Pick-up for sale.'”

My family tree must have been used for firewood!

Genealogists never die, they just lose their census.

you know every town clerk in your state by name
you get locked in the library over night and never even notice
you are more interested in what happened in 1667 than 1997
you store your clothes under your bed..the closet is carefully stocked with notebooks and journals
you can pinpoint Harrietsham, Hawkhurst and Kent on a map of England, but can not locate Topeka Kansas
