Genealogy humor

A reader recently asked me for this definition of a genealogist.

I knew I had it somewhere and, after some searching, here it is.

Before you ask, I have no idea who authored it or where I first discovered it. If you have any information, please post a comment below this item.

WHAT IS A GENEALOGIST?
A full-time detective
A thorough historian
An inveterate snoop
A confirmed diplomat
A keen observer
A hardened sceptic
An apt biographer
A qualified linguist
A part-time lawyer
A studious sociologist
An accurate reporter
An hieroglyphics expert,
AND . . .
A complete nut!

DAILY GENEALOGICAL THOUGHT:

A job is nice, but it interferes with genealogy research.
