    SYNOPSIS
 Humor: Collecting Dead Relatives. Laverne Galeener-Moore

Laverne Galeener-Moore

For the first time . . . a book that looks on the comic side of genealogy! Here you'll meet the people and situations you're already familiar with--the BORE, the BLUEBLOOD, the OLD MASTER, and the BRIEFCASE MAGNET, and a clutch of dissembling officials, wet-nosed beginners, and tongue-clucking harridans--but this time the meeting will drive you wild with laughter.

You'll learn about the latest techniques used by county clerks in repelling genealogists, about projector fatigue, and about acceptable and unacceptable behavior in graveyards. And you'll read about the sins of the D.A.R., research trip survival tactics, sadism in the county courthouse, the banality of workshops and seminars, the proper etiquette in prying information from reluctant relatives, and much, much more. This work is guaranteed to keep you sane and keep you laughing.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"Experienced genealogists will chuckle over the author's encounters and misadventures...Beginners may uncover some practical advice underneath the humor..."--THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, Vol. 63, No. 1 (January 1988).

"Expert guidance through the intracacies of genealogical research is provided here...[Galeener-Moore's] satiric approach--even reaching knee-slapping levels of hilarity here and there--proves to be a very effective and entertaining way of communicating essential information. Despite the guise of satire, this handbook is a serious guide to the rewards of doing genealogy right."--BOOKLIST (March 15, 1987), p. 1091.

Paperback, 155 pp., (1987) Reprint
