Format: Paperback
People researching their ancestors tend to be obsessive and humorless. This book is full of nice little tags, as well as some longer bits, that treat this business with the humor that I, anyway, think should be brought to it. (If you're going to do it at all.)

A couple of samples, not in verse (some of them are), from the book:

GENEALOGY: Tracing yourself back to people better than you are.
-John Garland Pollard (whoever he was and whoever his descendents and ascendents were)

We adore titles and heredities in our hearts, and ridicule them with our mouths.
-Mark Twain (who would have called himself a mudcat)

It is of no consequence of what parents a man is born, so he be a man of merit.
-Horace (bet you don't know he was; clue: he spoke Latin, and his father was born a slave. Not one of YOUR ancestors, huh?)

Format: Paperback
This book is a series of short quotes, quips, and poems in a plain typeset that evoke the idea of a handout passed between friends. Its short length, and small pages mean a read of less than half an hour, if that.
