You know that you are an addicted Genealogist when:

You brake for libraries.
You get locked in a library overnight and you never even notice.
You hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery.
You'd rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall.
You think every home should have a microfilm reader.
You'd rather read census schedules than a good book.
You know every town clerk in your state by name.
Town clerks lock the doors when they see you coming.
You are more interested in what happened in 1695 then 1995
You store your clothes under the bed and your closet is carefully stacked with notebooks and journals.
When Savage, Torrey and Pope are household names, but you cannot remember what you call your dog.
You can pinpoint Harrietsham, Hawkhurst, Kent on a map of England, but cannot locate Topeka, Kansas.
When all your correspondence begins "Dear Cousin"
If you've traced every one of your ancestral lines back to Adam and Ever and still cannot quit.
