Do you get excited when you drive by a Cemetery?
Do you talk about your deceased ancestors as though they were still a live?
Does your librarian or the person that works at the archives know your whole life story?
Do you check the obituaries everyday?
Does your spouse call the library to see when you are coming home?
Do you spend your vacation tracking down ancestors in county courthouses?
Do you keep pictures of tombstones or long deceased ancestors in your wallet?
Can you remember the date an ancestor died but you can't remember to feed the pets?
Instead of an emergency kit in your car you have a research kit.
Does your boss call the library or archives to see when you will be coming back from your lunch
If you said yes to one or more of these you are an addicted genealogist.
