Page 6 - No known cure. Treatment: Medication is useless. Disease is not fatal, but gets progressively worse. Patient should attend genealogy workshops, subscribe to genealogical magazines and be given a quiet corner in the house where he or she can be alone. Remarks: The unusual nature of this disease is that the sicker the patient gets, the more he or she enjoys it!
Page 6 - Genealogist's Disease WARNING: Genealogy Pox (Very contagious to adults) SYMPTOMS: Continual complaint as to need for names, dates and places.

Has compulsion to write letters. Swears at mailman when he doesn't leave mail. Frequents strange places such as cemeteries, ruins, and remote, desolate country areas.
