Genealogical Society to meet Aug. 4

The regular meeting of the Greene County Genealogical Society will be held Saturday, Aug. 4, at 10 am in the basement meeting room of the Jefferson public library. Corinne Bancroft will have the program “This & That, Plus a Brick Wall Repair”. Everyone is welcome and the library is handicapped accessible.There is a contagious disease for genealogists:
Symptoms: continual complaint as to need for names, dates and places. Patient has a black expression, sometimes deaf to spouse and children. Has no taste for work of any kind, except feverishly looking through records at libraries and courthouses. Has compulsion to write letters. Swears at mailman when he doesn’t leave mail. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote, desolate country areas. Makes secret night calls, hides phone bills from spouse and mumbles to self. Has strange, faraway look in eyes.

Treatment: medication is useless. Disease is not fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner in the house where he or she can be alone.

Remarks: The unusual nature of this disease is the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!
