I’m sure this new craze of genealogy can be harmful. Why on earth anyone would want to dig out obscure antecedents is beyond me, you never know who you might turn up.
It can stunt your life as well. For example, one young lass I know has her head deep in her Genealogy research Journal (Apparently she reads the GEDCOM standard over breakfast and understands it. Give me the racing guide any day.)
She’s constantly searching for cousins and organising family reunions. In most families I know, a reunion is an effective form of birth control.
But what I want to know is, can a first cousin, once removed, return?
