Yes, It's Genea-Man

The emergence of "History Woman" (see the post below this one) reminds me that "Genea-Man" showed up at the Chula Vista Genealogical Society meetings back in January, in a presentation I did of "Genealogy Is Fun! Seriously."

With the music of the Superman TV series swelling in the background, the announcer says:

----------------------------------------

Faster Than a Whirling Microfilm Machine.
More Powerful Than a Society Vice-President.
Able to Leap Over Two Gravestones in a Single Bound.
Look – Out In The Stacks! It’s a Nerd – It’s a Geek!
No – It’s "Genea-Man!"

Yes, "Genea-Man." A Strange Visitor from another Library who came to town with research abilities far beyond those of mortal men.

"Genea-Man" – Who can change the course of mighty pedigree charts and find ancestors in obscure documents.

Who, disguised as Randy Seaver, mild-mannered researcher for CVGS, fights a never-ending battle to find the Names, Dates, and Places of his Ancestors.

--------------------------------------------

A bit presumptuous, of course, but it got a laugh. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a cape to swirl around, nor could I find a way to fly in and land on the auditorium stage. No matter...I told them my x-ray vision wasn't working that day, and everybody groaned.

Now I need to get a comic strip started, I guess. Graphic is much better than words.

Your Genea-Man Comic Book is ready at http://www.searchroots.com/

Scroll down to the bottom and you will see the Genea-Man link. Save a copy of the PDF file to your computer so I can eventually delete it from my web site please.

Enjoy! LOL

Best Rechargeable Bark Control Collars How long does it take to train your dog to stop barking? Usually, a few days with the shock collar and longer with the other types, of course, the time element also depends on the personality of your dog.
