Top 10 List - Genealogy Words

JDR at the excellent Anglo-Celtic Connections blog (affiliated, I think, with the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO)) did some research on the Rootsweb mailing lists (using the search engine at, no doubt!) and came up with the Top 10 Genealogy Words - based on the frequency they occurred on the mailing lists (over 31 million posts!).

The blog post for the "Top Ten Genealogy Words" is here. I'm not going to spoil it - you need to go look at the list for yourself.

I was surprised, however, that "ancestry" or "ancestors" was not on the list.
