Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Part 1


Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings offers us the following challenge:

Your mission this week, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Find some of your favorite sayings, aphorisms, jokes, etc. They can be genealogy-related, or not.

2)  Translate them into Latin using Google Translate.

3)  Share them with us in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook status line or Google Plus Stream post (impress your non-genealogy friends with your Latin skills!).

4)  Of course, you could translate the Latin you read (on my blog, or the blogs of others) back into English (or your native language) using Google Translate too to see who was really funny, or mean, or romantic.  If you want to be really fancy, you could translate your sayings into any other language that uses Google Translate and really confuse all of us.

Here are my Latin (or are they?) phrases:
  1. Dum spiro spero
  2. A chur ar fáil go léir
  3. Hoc Marjorum Virtus
  4. Deus Juvat
  5. Si potest non tollendum ossa de domo, et bene sit tibi sicut exultant lusibus.
Here are my guesses for Mr. Seaver’s Latin phrases:
  1. Genealogy without sources is mythology.
  2. Families are like fudge… mostly sweet with a few nuts
  3. Genealogy: Collecting dead relatives and sometimes a live cousin!
  4. A family tree can wither if nobody tends it’s roots
  5. When you search for ancestors, you find great friends!
Check back at midnight for the translation of my phrases!

Have a blessed night, y’all!
