Why Wear A Genealogy T-Shirt?
Everyone feel comfortable wearing a T-Shirt. They are practical pieces of clothing and one of the beauties of a T-Shirt is that whilst the basic style remains the same there is such a huge scope for expressing your own personality by the design on the front. Some people like t-shirts with cute or artistic designs, some like t-shirts with designs dedicated to their favourite band, actor or TV show so why not have a t-shirt dedicated to genealogy, the best and most popular hobby in the world?

Genealogy Isn't Just For Old People!
My own genealogical experience began way back in the long gone days of the 1980's. I admit that it was a very unusual hobby at the time, especially when done by a fifteen year old girl! Whilst my friends were listening to music and out going to the cinema I loved spending my time at the local archives and local record offices. It wasn't that I was a nerd (well not much anyway) as I did do the same things as my friends in addition to my family history research but I have always found history intriguing and even more so when I came to the realisation that my family were a part of that history. Any genealogist will tell you that thrill you get when you realise that your family were part of something special.
Over the last few decades genealogy has become one of the most common hobbies worldwide and it has long since lost the stigma of being a pass time of the elderly and seriously nerdy! I believe that my early start into the genealogical world has given me a great sense of humour when it comes to the funny side of my genealogy research and I would like to share some of the great genealogy t-shirt designs I have seen showing the lighter, less serious side of family history.
Wear your Genealogy T-Shirt with Pride!
I have always found it fascinating that every single person on this planet has a family history and I believe that there is an instinctual need to know where you came from and to be proud of what your ancestors achieved. It may not be possible to find out everything but you must agree that whilst genealogy may be a slow process it is anything but boring!
Almost everyone who traces their family history is willing to share their knowledge no matter how scandalous or utterly boring their ancestors were.
