Just when I needed a laugh this morning, reader Crystal Pickett emailed links to a few of her favorite funny genealogy sites. Yes, there is such a thing as genealogy humor. For example:
Cyndis List: Humor (from Crystal)
My Elusive Ancestors (from Crystal)
Strange but true epitaphs (On an auctioneer’s tombstone: “Going! Going!! Gone!!!”)
Genealogy Humor (turns out you can be your own grandpa)
Census Whacking (blogger Randy Seaver’s links to funny names in census records)
Heir Jordan, Extreme Genealogy (video on Roots Television)
To thank Crystal, here are the lines shes searching: Shaw/Burtley from Mer Rouge, La.; and Crutch/Crutcher and Wilburn from Vaughn Miss. and Pickens, Miss.
