Oddball Sunday - I Dreamed A (Genealogy) Dream

Oddball Sunday is a new blog theme of mine. It will encompass anything that is odd, off topic, or just plain doesn't really fit into any of the more traditional Genealogy topic themes. 

I Dreamed A Dream

Last night, I had been doing some family genealogy research online until the wee hours of the morning. I finally shut down and went to bed. Now full disclosure - I have no tattoos and I have no interest/intent in sporting a tattoo myself. I have nothing against them or people who have them, they just aren't for me. 

In my dream, I was sitting in a tattoo parlour getting a colorful word cloud of my paternal surnames inked onto my right upper arm. It was so beautiful and I was so happy with it that in this dream (where time is apparently irrelevant LOL),  several days later I returned and had a word cloud of my maternal surnames tattood onto my left upper arm.  It was such a "real" and vivid dream that when I awoke I had to check to see if I really did have those tattoos on my arms.

Have you ever had genealogy related dreams or nightmares? I know you have...c'mon share them in the comments section!

  1. Researching late at night will certainly do that to you. Something about squinting at all that material. My genealogy dreams have not been so vivid and were more of the "I have a test at school but haven't attended any classes" type, mostly that I found something brilliant somewhere but couldn't retrace my steps to find it. Oh, wait, maybe that's real life (no, it was a dream).
