Collecting Dead Relatives
An Irreverant Romp Through the Field of GenealogyBook - 1987
Here you'll meet the people & situations you're already familiar with, or about to become familiar with-the BORE, the BLUEBLOOD, the OLD MASTER, & the BRIEFCASE MAGNET, & a clutch of dissembling officials, wet-nosed beginners, & tongue-clucking harridans-but this time the meeting will drive you wild with laughter. You'll learn about the latest techniques employed by county clerks in repelling genealogists, about projector fatigue, & about acceptable & unacceptable behavior in graveyards. You'll read about the sins of the D.A.R., research trip survival tactics, sadism in the county courthouses & the National Archives, the banality of workshops & seminars, the proper etiquette in prying information from reluctant relatives, & much, much more! Guaranteed to keep you sane & keep you laughing!
