We were out and about yesterday when we spotted this license plate.
Maybe the driver didn’t mean for the plate to be genealogical, but that’s how we’re taking it: Galicia is the name for both a community in northwestern Spain with roots going back to the Kingdom of Galicia, and a historical region of east-Central Europe now in Poland and Ukraine.
That got us thinking about other genealogy license plates you could make with the seven-character alphanumeric combo Ohio allows. We came up with GEDCOM, 3RD GR8 (or 4TH GRT, 5TH GR8 and so on), FMLY TRE and IMA MUTT.
Today I discovered others have already played this game—Mark Tucker’s Think Genealogy blog has plenty of good ideas for the next time you renew your plates.
If you’re having trouble condensing your love for genealogy into letters and numbers that’ll fit on a plate, type a word or phrase into the Vanity License Plate Generator and it’ll help you shorten your thought.
