You know you are taking it too seriously if...

bulletYour house leans slightly toward the side where your genealogical records are stored.
bulletYou decided to take a two-week break from genealogy, and the U. S. Postal Office
immediately laid off 1,500 employees.
bulletYou are the only person to show up at the cemetery research party with a shovel.
bulletIn order to put the "final touches" on your genealogical research, you've asked all
of your closest relatives to provide DNA samples.
bulletEverywhere you go you hear or see the name of that elusive ancestor that you just
can't trace.
bulletThe credits roll on a movie and you turn to your spouse and say "That's the name of
my GG-Grand so-and-so on my mother's side!".  (Tina Hall © 2000)
bulletA magical genie appears and agrees to grant you only one wish - you ask for the
1890 census to be restored.
