Get Your Chuckles Here



There are over 3000 genealogy blogs out there today.  Most of them are very good - a few are exceptional.  They all are trying to tell a story.  

There are a few bloggers out there that have the ability to tell a story and make you laugh until you cry or snort your morning coffee out your nose.

Today I am going to gift you with the names of a few of these bloggers and my favorite posts they wrote. You are welcome.

The We Tree Genealogy Blog is written by Amy Lenertz.  She was Amy Coffin back in 2011 when she wrote the post "If Genealogists Ran Hollywood."  Today she is the author of another very funny blog called "Amy Dorene Writes Stuff"  and on the more serious side she is the owner of Raincross Information Services.

Chris Dunham is another very funny guy.  I am still in mourning because his last post to The Genealogue was back in December 2012.  Chris describes himself as "the descendant of a surprisingly large number of ancestors. Turn-ons: transcribing, cemetery-hopping, and girls with big GEDCOMs. Turn-offs: stingy town clerks, open graves, and girls who don't give sources."  One of my favorite posts is "A Contrary Code of Conduct."  And you won't want to miss reading his famous "Top Ten Lists."  I did find out that Chris is the author of four genealogy blogs about the state of Maine: Maine Genealogy, All Things Maine, Maine Genealogy Archives and Oxford County Genealogy Notebook and one about New Hampshire - New Hampshire Genealogy Archives.

Everyone knows about Thomas MacEntee the genealogy ninja.  But did you know that he really is a very funny guy?  Back in February 2010 on his blog "Destination: Austin Family" he wrote a post called "Failed Genealogy Television Shows" that will have you rolling on the floor.

That same month and year, my good friend Donna Pointkouski, the author of "What's Past Is Prologue" wrote the article that inspired Thomas to write his - "If Genealogists Ruled The Television Networks."

Although not a genealogist, Kate Theimer is as funny as an archivist can be.  On her blog - "ArchivesNext" she wrote a post about a collection of Twitter comments called "The OverlyHonestArchivists Tweets"

Kerry Scott is the Queen of Wit.  Her blog - "Clue Wagon" is one of my favorites and a few of the best posts (in my opinion) are:  "Words Are For Chumps. Winky Face." and "In Which I Piss Off Pretty Much The Entire Genealogical Community." 

So there you have it.  I am certain that I have missed some Lulus.  Do you have a favorite to share with the rest of us?
