Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Genealogy Sayings in Latin

Hey genea-folks, 
it's Saturday Night again, 

 time for more Genealogy Fun!


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

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's five of mine:

*  Fontes sine est mythologia et sedum distributio

*  Maxime cum paucis nuces dulce tamquam Familiae fudge ...

*  Genealogiæ suæ: aliquando enim et vivere Collectis mortuus frater!

*  A familia arboris radices ejus non defluet si neminem invenit,

*  Cum quaesieritis maiores amicos habes!

Who can guess what these say in English?

Your turn - go for it!!!

I will add a comment for the translations of mine - from English to Latin - later.

What a shame I don't know Latin! I'm sure Google butchered it for me.

I will e-mail you separately my attempted translations of your sayings.

PS Annie! #2

I have my guesses to your phrases on my post. My Part 2 post, with the translation of my phrases, will post at midnight, Texas time...Oh yeah, the rest of you call it Central Time. :)

Have a blessed weekend!
